Event #55: HK$8,000 No Limit Hold'em Asia Championship, HK$8M GTD

Wu and "genbengLee" Depart; Two Tables Remain

zedmaster84 • Niveau 18: 100,000-200,000, 20,000 ante

Paul Teoh put pressure on a short-stacked Yu Fai "Peterboy7" Wu in a battle of the blinds and simply open-shoved when it was his turn to act. Wu opted for the call and that created a pot of 5.7 million.

Yu Fai "Peterboy7" Wu: {a-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
Paul Teoh: {9-Spades}{8-Hearts}

The {10-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{3-Spades} flop gave Teoh an open-ender and he made a pair on the {9-Clubs} turn. A blank {k-Hearts} fell on the river and Wu was gone in 18th place.

The next short stack to succumb was then "genbengLee" moments later when he was at risk out of the big blind for crumbs against Joao Vieira.

"genbengLee": {8-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}
Joao Vieira. {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}

A pair on the flop for "genbengLee" gave hope for a comeback but Vieira got there on the river of the {10-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{3-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{q-Spades} board.
