Kenneth Wong rode his short stack to three-handed play and is now over 1,000,000. 

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 K8♣63, 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♠J9♠5 for two pair and Huang mucked.

Wong is peaking, for the time being, and Huang is down to 700,000.
