Big Hand Sends Mr. Macau Home

Charles "Mr. Macau" Chua

We've had another three-way and this time Charles "Mr. Macau" Chua was on the losing end.

Pre-flop, Andrew McKeering moved all-in for his last 9,000 or so. Mr. Macau re-raised all-in himself, and PokerStars Team Asia Pro Bryan Huang decided to join the fray by shoving as well!

The cards were tabled, with Mr. Macau looking like he had both players covered:

Andrew: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}
Mr. Macau: {5-Diamonds}{5-Spades}
Bryan: {j-Clubs}{j-Spades}

It wasn't looking good for Andrew as the flop blanked out for everybody. However, the turn brought an ace and the river a king to give him two-pair and the much needed double-up.

Meanwhile, after all the chips were counted, it turned out that Bryan and Mr. Macau had the exact same number of chips! That meant that Bryan won the big side pot of 39,600, while Mr. Macau hits the rail at just about midnight.
