Pocket Aces Not Enough To Keep Marvin Fernandez In The Tournament

Marvin Fernandez

Yu Zhigang is on fire He had the honors of taking out the last player before the bubble but didn't stop there as he also eliminated the first player after the bubble burst.

On the very next hand after the bubble burst, Marvin Fernandez shoved all-in and Yu was happy to oblige, calling him and showing {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}.

Marvin flipped over {a-Clubs}{a-Spades}, though, and looked to be in a great position to double up.

As you've probably guessed by now, things didn't turn out the way the all-in player wanted.

The flop {8-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{5-Spades} and turn {10-Hearts} kept him ahead, but the {9-Diamonds} landed with a thud to give Yu the set and eliminating Marvin from the tournament. He wins Php 20,000 for his troubles.
