Hilary Hin Cheung tried as hard as he could to keep climbing the pay ladder but his run as the short stack is over. Cheung found a spot to get his chips in but had unlucky timing against Josh Evans.
Evans opened in the cutoff to 110,000 and Cheung three-bet all-in for 625,000 total. Evans confirmed the total and dropped in chips for a call with A♣J♠. Cheung’s A♥4♥ was out-kicked and he fell further behind on the K♠10♦5♥ flop. The 10♥ gave him extra life with a flush draw and some chop outs but the 3♦ river sealed his fate.
Evans was short as recently as last level but is now up to 1,600,000 and at his final table peak.
