Bin Weng Eliminated in Round of 8 ($36,280)

Bin Weng - Dan Zack
Bin Weng - Dan Zack

In the previous hand, Bin Weng and Daniel Zack got it in after a {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{7-Hearts} flop and both showed the bottom end of the straight without a redraw to secure a chop. The next hand saw them head to the {k-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{3-Hearts} flop and Weng check-raised from 20,000 to 67,000.

Zack moved all-in and his opponent mulled over his decision. "I hope I am not drawing dead," Weng said and called it off.

Bin Weng: {8-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}
Daniel Zack: {q-Clubs}{5-Clubs}

The {4-Clubs} turn instantly left Weng drawing dead and that made the {j-Clubs} river a formality. Weng has been eliminated in the round of the last eight and takes home $38,280.

"Can I ask what you had in the king-king hand?" Zack asked when it was all over and Weng replied "I had ace six," to which Zack admitted he folded a king.

Benjamin Reason was at risk for the final 114,000 before the flop with the {q-Clubs}{j-Hearts}. Henri Puustinen was attempting to deal the final blow with the {q-Spades}{7-Spades} but failed to get there on the {q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} board. The kicker played and Reason doubled his short stack.
