Kenneth Wong

Kenneth Wong drew the short end of the stick in quite a few post-flop hands during three-handed play and was soon left with little chips to fight with. Wong attempted to double through Yi-Chih Huang but Huang got the better of him one last time.

Wong opened to 120,000 in the small blind and Huang called from the big blind. Wong moved all-in for about 225,000 on the A10♣7 flop and Huang called with KQJ♣10♠ for a major draw (and pair) against the single pair of Wong A♠K♠4♣3. The 9 turn gave Huang more outs and they came through on the 8♣ river.

Wong is out from the final table and Huang is up to 1,655,000. Peter Eichhardt is right behind him with 1,350,000 to start heads up play.
