And Then There Were Sixteen

Raymond Wu and Ricky Foo

A sudden rash of all-ins have left us scrambling to take notes as players dropped like flies on three consecutive hands.

On the first hand, a player went all-in with {a-}{k-} and got called "Benny" with {a-}{9-}.

The player with ace-king was looking like he was ready to double up but it wasn't meant to be as the flop came {9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{3-Clubs}.

The turn and river blanked out and the disgusted player hit the rail.

Just as he busted out, there was a commotion on the other table as PokerStars Team Asia Pro Raymond Wu had gone all-in with {q-Spades}{10-Diamonds} and was called by Raiden Kan with {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}.

Raymond was in pretty bad shape and was sent to the rail after the board ran out {j-Spades}{9-Hearts}{3-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{a-Spades}.

The very next hand, it was Ricky Foo shoving all-in for his stack of 79,000 and was instantly called by Kuan Chi Keong.

Ricky was in big trouble as Kuan showed {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} against his {5-Hearts}{6-Hearts}.

The flop came {q-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{7-Hearts} to give Ricky the outs to a straight but the turn and river blanked out to send him out of Day 1D.

Kuan, meanwhile, is at about 183,000 in chips.
