Sim Somyung Eliminated in Third

We are now heads-up after Sim Somyung was eliminated in third, cashing in for Php 2,900,000.

After a raise and then re-raise all-in by Sim Somyung, we had a typical pre-flop race:

Somyung: {k-Diamonds} {j-Diamonds}
Han: {8-Clubs} {8-Spades}

The {7-Spades} {10-Clubs} {a-Spades} {a-Hearts} {4-Clubs} board did not improve Somyung's hand and he was busted out by his fellow Korean.

After Somyung's elimination, we are now in heads-up play.

Kevin Clark Out in Fourth

It's the end of the line for Kevin Clark, who managed to survive all this way despite being short-stacked almost all the way.

Clark pushed all-in pre-flop and got instantly called by David Hilton.

David Hilton: {9-Spades} {9-Clubs}
Kevin Clark: {a-Hearts} {9-Hearts}

The flop came out {q-Hearts} {5-Hearts} {9-Diamonds}, giving Hilton the set but opening the door for a flush draw by Clark.

However, it bricked out the rest of the way with {4-Diamonds} and {3-Spades} and we are now down to our final three after Kevin Clark's exit in 4th.

For the win, Clark wins Php 2,036,420.

Slow Into the Break

Things have slowed down dramatically since the last elimination.

If the players are taking flops they are checking them down the vast majority of the time.

They took checked the {8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{6-Spades} flop and the {5-Spades} turn. On the {k-Spades} river Han bet out 235,000 and took it down.
