Takashi Shiono Eliminated in 11th Place (HK $40,300)

We have a final table here at the Red Dragon main event after the elimination of Takashi Shiono.

Pre-flop, he got all his money in with {q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} against the {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds} of another player but his lead wouldn't last as the flop came {9-Hearts}{j-Clubs}{k-Clubs}.

He would need a queen to stay alive but the turn {2-Diamonds} and {3-Hearts} did not bring a lady.

With his exit, we are now down the final ten, with Bryan Huang as the current chip leader with 640,000.

Three players have been eliminated almost simultaneously on the two remaining tables.

First, it was Cedric Raffi going all-in against big stack Ricky Foo. Ricky was behind with {a-}{q-} against Cedric's {a-}{k-}.

However, a queen appeared on the board of {q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{10-Clubs}{2-Spades} and Cedric hit the rail.

Over on the other table, it was a three-way all-in pre-flop with Che Wei Chao having both Ben Abrahams and Carlos Chang covered.

Ben: {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}
Chao: {q-Spades}{q-Clubs}
Carlos: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Both Carlos and Ben would need to hit big on the flop but it did not cooperate, coming out {3-Spades}{2-Spades}{9-Hearts}.

The turn and river would not help them either and they both exit the tournament at the hands of Chao.

As a result of the timing of their finishes, Carlos and Cedric both finish a dual 13th place with HK $36,950 in prize money.

Ben, meanwhile, wins HK $40,400 for finishing 12th.

Clash Of The Blinds

Looks like Bryan Huang is back on top after a big double up against Tomoki Yasuda.

Pre-flop, a raising war between the two ended up with Tomoki going all-in and Bryan making the call as the at-risk player.

Tomoki: {j-Spades}{k-Clubs}
Bryan: {a-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}

Bryan was ahead and looking to double up and he was able to do so after the board ran out {10-Spades}{4-Hearts}{4-Spades}{5-Hearts}{8-Clubs}.

He is now at about 380,000 and is looking like he's chip leader again.

Queens Keep Kenichi Alive

Kenichi Takarabe is still alive in the tournament after doubling off Martin Rottem Dahle.

Pre-flop, both players got their stacks in with Kenichi's {q-Spades}{q-Hearts} ahead of Martin's {9-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}.

A ten came on the flop of {7-Spades}{7-Clubs}{10-Spades} to give Martin's hand some hope but the turn and river bricked out to give Kenichi the double-up.

After a standard pre-flop raise by player one seat away, Ben Abrahams moved all-in and his opponent made the call.

Ben: {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Opponent: {j-Clubs}{10-Spades}

Ben was looking to avoid a jack and he stayed alive when the board ran out {3-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3-Hearts}.

Slowdown

[user133555]

After that big flurry of action early on we've hit a speed bump as the players have tightened up a little bit as the final table gets closer.

Che Wei Chao Hits Quads, Triples Up

Che Wei Chao has just tripled up after an all-in confrontation with two other players.

Pre-flop, it was Che Wei's {9-Clubs}{9-Spades} up against the {q-Spades}{q-Hearts} of a big stacked player and another player's {8-Clubs}{10-Hearts}.

He immediately hit on the flop as it came {9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}.

The turn was a meaningless {5-Clubs} and the river brought another nine, the {9-Hearts} for good measure.

He is now at about 200,000.
