EPT 100 – Bubble Bursts In Rare Fashion In Barcelona

A boy band's worth of bubblers get paid on a single hand.

The money bubble at EPT Barcelona proved to be an interesting one and not without a little controversy. As Head of Live Poker Operations for PokerStars Europe Neil Johnson talks with PokerNews about the previously nearly un-encountered situation that arose when no fewer than 5 people when bust on the same hand over 4 different tables…and how to you pay that out when you were hand-for-hand on the stone bubble.

As you’ll see PokerStars invoked the #1 rule for TD’s which is the ability to do whatever they think is in the best interest of the players but concede that in the future there should probably be something more concrete when there’s a wad of cash (as well as a bonus prize) that needs dividing.

One guy who wasn’t super thrilled with how it went down was one of the bubble boys, Randal Flowers, who after being consoled by pal Dan Smith realized he wanted more than he got.


Mayhem at #EPT100… Six simultaneous all-ins on the bubble!
