Michael Cua Doubles Off Bryan Huang

Michael Cua

Michael Cua has just survived a confrontation with PokerStars Team Asia Pro Bryan Huang to double up -- the fourteenth of hand-for-hand play.

Pre-flop, the two got it all-in, but the cards could not be revealed because there was action on the other table.

"I gotta tell you guys, I usually end up busting the bubble," said Bryan while we were waiting for the other group to finish up.

Finally, the cards were tabled, with Bryan's {a-Diamonds}{2-Spades} behind Michael's {a-Spades}{j-Spades}.

When the flop came, though, it looked as if Bryan's comment might prove true. The first three cards came {7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}, giving Bryan a world of outs with the straight draw and flush draw.

However, the turn and river blanked with running non-diamond kings, giving Michael a double-up.

Everybody in the room could only laugh it off as we are now almost two hours into hand-for-hand play with no bust-out.
