RIcky Foo

Pre-flop, Ricky Foo got the rest of his short stack in with {k-Clubs}{7-Clubs} but would need to catch some help as Cheng Feng Li called him with {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}.

Help did come, but not for him. Cheng flopped two-pair and turned a full house as the board ran out {6-Spades}{j-Spades}{a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}{10-Spades}.

Ricky hits the rail in eight place for a cash prize of HK $80,900.

After the exit of Anthony Hughes, play has quieted down a bit as all-in bets are being met with folds.

On the last hand, Kenji Kurashina made a pre-flop raise to 25,000. Victor, who was next to act, then declared he was all-in.

After everybody folded back to Kenji, he thought long and hard before finally folding. Victor's supporters cheered loudly as he showed pocket queens before raking in the pot.

Pre-flop, Eric Stanley made a raise to 30,000 from middle position and everybody folded to Anthony Hughes in the big blind, who thought for a while before finally declaring "all in." Eric snap called and the cards were shown:

Anthony: {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}
Eric: {j-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

Anthony was behind and needed to catch an ace to survive. Nothing came on the flop, which brought {7-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{4-Clubs}.

The turn {9-Spades} and river {3-Clubs} were also blanks, busting out Anthony in tenth place with HK $53,900.
