Jessica Ngu

Cole Swannack raised to 18,500 for the second hand in a row, this time from the cutoff. Jessica Ngu called in the big blind. The flop bled {6-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}. Ngu checked, and Swannack checked behind. The turn was the {5-Spades}, and Ngu bet out 30,000. Swannack instantly said "all in," and Ngu called. Neither held a diamond. Instead, Ngu had flopped a set with {3-Spades}{3-Hearts}, and Cole had turned a straight with {a-Clubs}{7-Clubs}. Ngu needed the board to pair to stay alive, but the river was a total brick, the {10-Clubs}. With 183,000 to his name, Swannack had Ngu covered by exactly 1,000 and eliminated the last woman in the field. She gets HK$108,200 for 20th place.
