Bryan Huang Eliminated After Running into Aces

Bryan Huang

PokerStars Team Asia Pro Bryan Huang, who ended Day 1A as the chip leader, is now out of the tournament after running into the aces of chip leader Jun Chen.

Pre-flop, the cut-off made a raise to 27,000 and Bryan re-raised all-in from the button. Chip leader Jun Chen made the call from the small blind and the cut-off got out of the way.

Bryan: {j-Hearts}{k-Spades}
Jun: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}

Bryan was in big trouble against pocket rockets and would need something significant to get out of the hand with his stack still intact.

Unfortunately for him, the board ran out {10-Spades}{q-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{6-Spades}, denying him the double-up and sending the current second placer of the Asia Player of the Year leaderboard of the tournament.

After winning that big pot, Jun is now at a massive 750,000 in chips.
