Tsang Takes Commanding Lead

zedmaster84 • Niveau 43: 250,000-500,000, 60,000 ante

A button min raise to 1 million by Anson "[email protected]" Tsang was called by Stephen "supernuts21" Holford in the big blind, who proceeded to check the {7-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{4-Spades} flop. Tsang continued for 1.45 million and was called.

Holford check-called another 1.7 million on the {6-Spades} turn and opted to check the {4-Hearts} on the river. Tsang now fired a third bet for 4.15 million total and Holford called with the {10-Hearts}{6-Hearts} for sixes and fours, which Tsang had beat with the {8-Hearts}{2-Spades} for an eight-high straight.

Wong "SMLJtroll" Soon Heong Eliminated in 5th Place

Down to fewer than 11 blinds, Wong "SMLJtroll" Soon Heong moved all in from the button and Stephen "supernuts21" Holford went all-in over the top for more than 17.7 million from the small blind, which successfully isolated.

Wong "SMLJtroll" Soon Heong: {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}
Stephen "supernuts21" Holford: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Heong took the lead on the {q-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{4-Spades} flop but it was a short-lived one, as Holford improved on the {k-Hearts} turn. A blank {6-Clubs} river reduced the field to the final four contenders and Heong receives $43,418.80 for his efforts.
