Veerachai Vongxaiburana has managed to chip up effectively since he was facing a deficit against a game opponent in Lance Howard and he is now nearing victory.
Vongxaiburana has been chipping away at Howard and running well, according to his own words, and just took down a pot to leave Howard with less than five big blinds.
Both players limped in and checked to the turn on a board of K♥J♦10♦2♣. Howard bet 75,000 and Vongxaiburana called to the 10♠ river. Vongxaiburana checked and Howard bet 155,000. Vongxaiburana matched the bet and Howard said he missed, leaving Vongxaiburana to turn over K♦Q♣9♣7♦ for a flopped straight.
Howard is down to 250,000 and needs to make some magic happen to pull back close to Vongxaiburana.
