Up and Down

Wally Sombero

A few minutes after his son Brian was eliminated, Wally Sombero kept the family hopes alive by doubling up against chip leader Somyung Sim.

Pre-flop, he had his stack all-in with {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} and chip leader Somyung made the quick call with {a-}{9-}.

The flop ran out {2-Hearts}{7-Spades}{8-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{4-Spades} and Wally doubled to about 89,000.

However, the very next hand, Wally was on the other side of the coin flip as he got {a-Spades}{k-Clubs} all-in against the shorter-stacked Stephen Lim's {7-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}.

The board blanked for both players and Wally dropped back down to about 55,000.
