Sim Somyung Doubles Up Dong-bin Han

Sim Somyung kept the Korean double up theme going. On an all-Korean heads-up flop of {10-Spades}{2-Clubs}{4-Spades} Dong-bin Han checked to Somyung who announced all in. The all in would be a massive overbet of the pot and would cover Han. Han didn't even think, he just announced call and tabled {A-Clubs}{a-Diamonds}.

Somyung rolled over his own {k-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and would need help in the now near million chip pot.

The turn {4-Hearts} and river {6-Hearts} were not his required outs so Somyung drops to 860,000. Han moves up to 950,000.

Mark Pagsuyuin has been very quiet at this final table so far, but his large crowd of Filipino supporters had a lot to cheer about on the last hand played. Phillip Willcocks opened the pot to 50,000, then called all in after Pagsuyuin re-raised all in for about 425,000. Willcocks was drawing with {A-Hearts} {K-Diamonds} against Pagsuyuin's {Q-Spades} {Q-Diamonds}.

"Queen! Queeeeeeeeeen!" Pagsuyuin's supporters pleaded. They roared their approval when the flop came {5-Spades} {Q-Hearts} {2-Clubs} to give Pagsuyuin a set of queens and a hammer-lock on the hand. The turn {5-Hearts} paired the board, ending any further drama. Once the river fell {K-Hearts}, Willcocks left the table in 8th place.

Sim Somyung Wins a Pot and a Penalty

Sim Somyung and Dong-bin Han got some Korean-on-Korean action happening.

Preflop, Han limped in, Mark Pagsuyuin completed from the small blind and Somyung checked the big blind.

The flop came {6-Hearts}{5-Spades}{a-Hearts} and it was checked around to the {7-Spades} turn. On the turn Pagsuyuin and Somyung both checked to Han who fried out a bet of 55,000.

Before Pagsuyuin had a chance to act, Somyung announced, call out of turn. Pagsuyuin folded and the tournament director ruled that the out of turn action was binding.

The {j-Clubs} hit the river and again Somyung checked, encouraging Han to bet out 70,000. Somyung called and rolled over {j-Spades}{5-Diamonds}. That would beat out Han's {4-Hearts}{4-Clubs}.

Somyung dragged the pot, but was assessed a one hand penalty for acting out of turn.

Sim Somyung Takes Big Pot From Phillip Willcocks

Sim Somyung just got a big boost to his stack.

The flop came out {10-Hearts} {5-Clubs} {Q-Spades}. After both players checked, the turn card was shown: {7-Diamonds}

Phillip bet 200,000 but was then re-raised all-in by Sim. After tanking, Phillip decided to lay it down.

Kevin Clark Doubles-Up Again

Dong-bin Han raised to 58,000 and Kevin Clark pushed all-in from the small blind for an additional 162,000. After tanking, Dong-bin called.

Clark: {A-Spades} {K-Spades}
Han: {A-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds}

The board ran out: {3-Spades} {Q-Diamonds} {A-Clubs} {2-Spades} {J-Diamonds} to keep Kevin Clark a second double-up. He is now up to more than 400,000 in chips.
