Craig Rubinstein had been working in the middle of the pack for the majority of Day 2 but his table breaking made a big difference in his stack’s trajectory. As soon as he sat down, he managed to bust an opponent via a coin-flip. More recently, he eliminated John Attanasio in a pre-flop encounter.
John Attanasio open shoved 530k (13 big blinds) from middle position and was called by Rubinstein in the cutoff. The button and blinds folded out and the cards were on their backs.
Attanasio J♥J♠ vs Rubinstein A♥10♠ Pot: 1.16M
Rubinstein moves up to 2.2M after spiking a three-outer to take out a very tough opponent.
