Jade Triste Eliminated in 2nd Place (Php 1,700,000)

Jade Triste is the runner-up

Tony Albano has just won the FPT Metro Anniversary Special!

Pre-flop, Jade shoved with her remaining chips and got a call from Tony.

Jade: {a-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}
Tony: {k-Diamonds}{q-Spades}

Jade was slightly ahead pre-flop with her ace high.

However, disaster struck for her when a king immediately came on the {9-Spades} {8-Clubs} {k-Clubs} flop.

The turn {6-Diamonds} and river {j-Diamonds} did her no good, giving Tony Albano all the chips on the table.

It was a valiant effort by Jade to overcome her chip deficit with a lot of aggressive play. She exits as the runner-up but still walks away with a hefty prize of Php 1,700,000.

Jade Doubles Up

With her chips dwindling, Jade finally made an all-in call and it turned out to be a good one.

With the board showing {2-Spades}{3-Spades}{7-Hearts}{a-Hearts}, Tony went all-in and got instantly called by Jade.

Tony showed {6-Hearts}{8-Hearts} for the flush draw while Jade had {5-Hearts}{4-Hearts} for the made straight.

The {k-Spades} landed on the river and Jade doubles up to about 2,200,000 in chips.

High Cards Clash

A recent hand showed that both players had the guts to make bets and call without hitting anything on the board.

After both players limped, we saw the flop {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} which was checked by both players.

Tonypet then called Jade's lead out for 100,000 on the turn {4-Spades}. After the river {5-Spades}, we got more action from Tonypet's call of Jade's 200,000 bet.

Tonypet's {a-Hearts}{6-Spades} was ahead of Jade's {k-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for ace high.
