Main Event

Yoo Ngu

On a hand that went well into the break, Daren Yoon really turned up the heat. Four players saw a {10-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} flop. Jessica Ngu checked to Yoon, who bet 1,400. Raymond Wu called, one player folded, and Ngu tank-called. The turn brought the {5-Spades}, and Ngu checked again. Yoon made a rainbow bet, and one chip of each color added up to 6,625. Wu counted out his entire stack before folding. Ngu had already decided what she would do when it was her turn to act. She min-raised to 13,250. Yoon checked to make sure he had her covered, then moved all in.

The break started while Ngu tanked, and the tournament director came over to announce the action on the microphone. Hearing that Yoon was involved in the hand, Terrance Chan dashed over from the High Roller event on the other side of the room. Ngu's face turned bright red under the scrutiny, and after a few minutes, she mucked. After the hand, Ngu was down to 25,500 and Yoon was up to 58,000.
