Survival Instincts

"Mr. Wong"

A large crowd gathered as the two remaining tables both had simultaneous all-in moments.

On the first table, Raymond Wu raised 25,000 from the cut-off and the button, Yosuke "Ketuwo" Isobe, went all-in for 15,400 more. Everybody else folded back to Raymond, who made the call.

Raymond showed {a-Hearts}{4-Clubs} to the delight of Yosuke, who had {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}.

The flop came {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{10-Hearts}, keeping the at-risk player alive. He jumped into the air as a queen then appeared on the turn, locking up his win and ensuring that he his stack would live to fight another day.

On the other table, it was Budi "Kevin" Hartono getting it all-in against a shorter stack who was identified as "Mr. Wong".

Budi showed {q-}{q-}, which was way ahead of Mr. Wong's {k-}{q-}.

However, the cards had other plans. The flop came {k-}{5-}{2-} to give Mr. Wong the bigger pair and another king landed on the turn to seal his victory.

Both players survive and we continue with hand-for-hand play.
