Aces Not Enough for Raymond

Raymond Wu

Pre-flop, Raymond Wu got it all-in with {a-}{a-} and was in great shape against Justin Chan, who showed {a-Hearts}{k-}.

With Raymond holding two aces, Justin's outs were diminished. However, they were just reduced, not eliminated, as evidenced by the flop of {k-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}.

Suddenly finding himself behind in the hand, Raymond would need an ace to wrestle the lead back and eliminate Justin. It didn't happen as the turn and river were complete blanks, giving Justin a big double-up.

Justin is now about 345,000 while Raymond is now down to 110,000.
