Dong-bin's Good Luck Continues to Run

Kevin Clark put his tournament life on the line when he went all-in and was called by Dong-bin Han.

Dong-bin: {k-Spades}{10-Spades}
Clark: {a-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}

Dong-bin was dominated and looking for a king. However, the flop came out {5-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}, giving him extra outs for a split pot if a ten came out.

The turn was a {2-?} but Han's {10-?} came on the river, denying Clark a double-up and showing that the Korean is indeed running very well today.

Terry Fan Exits in Fifth Place

Terry Fan, who was the Day 1A chip leader, has been eliminated from the tournament.

Pre-flop, Sim Somyung raised to 75,000 only to have Terry Fan go all-in with around 550,000. Dong-bin Fan snap-called and Somyung folded after asking for a chip count.

Fan turned over {8-Clubs}{8-Diamonds} but was dominated when Han tabled {q-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}.

The board of {3-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} did not bring any help to Fan and he busted out in 5th place for Php 1,500,000.

Hilton Plays Aces Slowly

David Hilton and Dong-bin Han were each dealt a big hand, yet somehow the betting didn't get crazy out of control. The pot was raised preflop, with both players checking a {10-Spades} {5-Clubs} {3-Diamonds} flop. On the {J-Diamonds} turn Hilton led out for 76,000. Han raised 101,000 more on top of that, with Hilton quickly calling. He then checked the {k-Diamonds} river and called a bet of 129,000. Han showed down {A-Spades} {K-Spades} for a rivered pair of kings, but lost the pot to Hilton's very surprising {A-Hearts} {A-Clubs}!

Mark Pagsuyuin Eliminated in 6th Place

The last Filipino player standing, Mark Pagsuyuin, has been eliminated from the final table.

Pre-flop, Dong-bin Han bet for 65,000 and was called by Pagsuyuin.

Flop: {6-Diamonds} {k-Spades} {3-Spades}

Both players checked and again on the turn, which showed {2-Diamonds}.

However, things heated up when {a-Hearts} came on the river. Mark pushed all-in and was called by Dong-bin, who flipped over {A-Spades} {10-Hearts}. Mark showed an ace with a barely smaller kicker, {A-Diamonds} {9-Clubs}, and he exits the tournament in 6th.

Mark goes home with Php 1,150,000 though, a big prize considering he entered by winning a satellite qualifier.

Clark Doubles Again

Kevin Clark
Kevin Clark
Kevin Clark has been all in and called three times this afternoon, and he has doubled up every time. His third double-up came courtesy of Dong-bin Han. Han opened preflop for 54,000 from the small blind. Clark called from the big blind, then called all in for about 450,000 on a flop of {Q-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{10-Spades} after Han shoved. Han opened a flush draw, {9-Hearts} {7-Hearts}, against Clark's top pair, {Q-Diamonds} {j-Clubs}. The flush draw never came, with the turn {k-Diamonds} and river {3-Clubs} changing nothing. Clark doubled up again. After starting the day as the short stack, he's up to about 1.0 million in chips.

Pagsuyuin's Flush Doesn't Come

Sim Somyung
Sim Somyung
Mark Pagsuyuin took a curious line in a three-way pot against Sim Somyung and David Hilton, but it didn't work out for him. Hilton opened preflop to 64,000 from under the gun before Pagsuyuin and Somyung called out of the blinds. On a flop of {3-Diamonds} {10-Clubs} {2-Clubs}, Pagsuyuin acted first and made a suspiciously small bet of 50,000 into the 200,000-chip pot. Only Somyung called.

Pagsuyuin checked the {3-Spades} turn, then quickly called a bet of 100,000 from Somyung. Both players checked the {3-Spades} river, with Pagsuyuin turning over a busted draw, {Q-Clubs} {J-Clubs}. Somyung took the pot with {8-Diamonds} {8-Hearts}.
