Gordon Doubles to Take the Lead

After having Binh Nguyen as the chip leader for the last few levels, Gordon Huntly has turned the tables during heads-up play after a recent double-up.

On a board of {3-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}, Binh bet 550,000 and Gordon declared all-in. Binh snap-called and the cards were tabled:

Binh: {10-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Gordon: {k-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}

Both players had made the diamond flush but Gordon was way ahead with the higher one.

The river {j-Hearts} was inconsequential and the chips were moved Gordon's way.

Gordon is now up to 4,500,000 for the lead while Binh is at about 4,000,000.

Charles Doubles Up -- Almost.

Big pot ends in split
Big pot ends in split
Pre-flop, Charles 'Mr. Macau' Chua went all-in and got called by Gordon Huntly.

Charles: {a-Spades}{10-Clubs}
Gordon: {a-Hearts}{9-Hearts}

Charles was ahead and would stay that way on the flop of {k-Spades}{q-Spades}{3-Clubs}.

The turn would not bring the nine that would eliminate him as it came {4-Hearts}.

Another four, {4-Clubs}, came on the river, prompting tournament director Danny McDonagh to say that Charles had doubled-up.

After a second look, though, the river had actually made it into a chop -- a pair of fours with king, queen, and the aces held by the two for an identical top five.
