Connors Bubbles in 91st

• Level 9: 500-1,000, 100 ante
Mike Connors bubbles Event 1 of the 2014 WSOP

Mike Connors opened for 2,400 and was called by big stack Jay Graunstadt. The two players saw a flop of {q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}. Connors checked and when Graunstadt bet 6,000 Connors moved all in.

Graunstadt quickly called and when the tournament director arrived he instructed them to turn over their hands.

Connors {a-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}

Graunstadt {k-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

Graunstadt had flopped the straight. The turn {2-Spades} and river {q-Diamonds} saw all the remaining players make the money.

Commiserations to Connors who was disappointed but extremely gracious in defeat, informing PokerNews that he was a dealer at Harrah’s and when he wasn’t dealing he liked to play a ton of MTTs on WSOP.com under the username “ValueTown” where he's had an account since Jan 19th.
