"Ralden" Takes One Out


A player who only gave us "Ralden" as his name just took out a player on a recent hand.

Pre-flop both players got their money all-in with Ralden showing {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} against his opponent's dominated {j-}{q-}.

The flop of {5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{5-Hearts} were of no help to the at-risk player, who was calling for a jack.

Instead, the {a-Clubs} came on the turn to seal his fate and he hit the rail after the {10-Hearts} was dealt on the river.

With his stack at about 19,000, Ricky Foo decided to go all-in and got a caller in Ronald Ong.

Ricky: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}
Ronald: {9-}{9-}

Ricky hit big on the flop as it came {a-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{k-Spades} to give him top two pair. The turn {j-Spades} and river {6-Clubs} did not change anything and Ricky is now at about 40,000.

Neil Arce Eliminated


After losing virtually his entire stack in the last hand we reported, Neil Arce got his last 800 in on the next hand and could not hit a miracle. He is now on the rail, which means that most of the Filipino players in the tournament are now out of contention.

It looks like we could have a new chip leader after a huge pot that took place on Neil Arce's table.

Pre-flop, Neil Arce went all-in for his stack of more than 30,000 and the short-stacked cut-off made the call and went all-in as well. To make things more fun, Jacky Zhang, who had a stack just a little smaller than Neil, also declared he was all-in and the cards were tabled:

Neil: {9-}{9-}
Jacky: {10-}{10-}
Opponent: {a-}{q-}

The flop came {4-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} and it looked like the short stack would triple up. The turn {6-Diamonds} did not change any of that but everything would end up going to Jacky when the {10-Spades} landed on the river to give him the set.

Jacky is now at about 65,000 in chips while Neil is left with 800.
