Lunardi Busts; Bell Is Back

We wandered over to table 12 we noticed that Kristian Lunardi's seat had been vacated. A quick word with the table and Emanuel Bell was helpful to let us know that Lunardi pushed his short stack with {J-?}{10-?} and ran into an opponent's pocket aces.

We then watch the next hand as Bell shoved all in over the top of a raise and a call for the last of his 4,650 chips. In one of the more bizarre all-ins we've ever witnessed that was reminiscent of a Phil Laak all-in, Bell immediately stood from the table, put his bag over his shoulder and finished off his glass of cola, in preparation of his apparent certain elimination.

However he soon had to sit back down again as his {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades} won the race against an opponent who called with {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts} when the board ran out {A-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}. Bell is back to 9,500.
