For the longest time at this final table, Kenneth Wong was one of, if not the, short stack. Wong bided his time and made a few pay jumps to make it to three-handed play. Now that he’s made it this far, Wong isn’t going down without a fight and is up to 1,020,000 after getting some river value from Yi-Chih Huang.
With about 120,000 in the pot and the board reading K♦8♣6♥3♦, Wong bet 92,000 into Huang from the small blind. Huang called and the J♣ hit the river. Wong bet 233,000 more and after some time in the tank, Huang called. Wong showed K♠J♥9♠5♥ for two pair and Huang mucked.
Wong is peaking, for the time being, and Huang is down to 700,000.
