BrettC • Level 14: 2,000-4,000, 0 ante

Inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino isn't the only place for you to satisfy your World Series of Poker appetite. WSOP.com is the leading online poker site in Nevada and has plenty of action running around the clock, seven days a week.

All summer long, a special promotion labeled Multi-Table Madness will be running from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. PST each night. The promotion will select one random hand at a random cash-game table during those hours that will award every player dealt into the hand with a cash bonus up to $100.

What's more is that WSOP.com will be sweetening the prize by giving players as much as $100 more for each additional table they're playing at during the time of the drawing. That means if you're playing in four different cash games when your table is selected, you could walk away with up to $400 in bonus money.

Ben Yu Eliminated One Short of the Money

• Level 13: 1,500-3,000, 0 ante

A short-stacked Ben Yu would get the last of his chips in with {K-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} against his opponent's {5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}. The board would run out {Q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} and the tournament director announced that the players were in the money to a small round of applause.

Bubble Time!

• Level 13: 1,500-3,000, 0 ante

They have paused the action as we are now down to 73 players. We'll play hand-for-hand until we lose one more player.

Mierkalns Survives as Bubble Looms

• Level 13: 1,500-3,000, 0 ante

There are 75 players remaining meaning we are only three away from making the money. Mark Mierkalns three-bet pre-flop and fired out a bet on the {A-Spades}{4-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop and then put his last 1,300 in on the {J-Diamonds} turn. His lone opponent made the call and turned over {7-}{7-}. He was drawing dead as Mierkalns had {J-}{J-} for a turned set. The river was a meaningless {Q-Clubs} and Mierkalns scored the much needed double up.
