Lei "Alex" Long Eliminated in Third Place (HK $130,000)

Lei "Alex" Long

After Tom Chou doubled off of Lei "Alex" Long earlier, Lei decided to go all-in again and got a caller in Justin Chan.

Unfortunately for Lei, his {3-Hearts}{5-Hearts} was far behind the {a-Spades}{k-Spades} of Justin and he would need to get lucky to pull it off.

The crowd gasped as the flop came {k-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}, giving Justin top pair but arming Lei with an open-ended straight draw.

It got even more interesting as the {k-Hearts} landed on the turn. Justin got additional outs because of the heart-flush draw but any ace would eliminate him because it would give his opponent the full house.

It wasn't meant to be for Lei, as the {7-Clubs} came on the river to finally give us our first bust-out after a lengthy bout of three-handed play.

For his third place finish, Lei received HK $130,000 in prize money.

We are now heads-up!
