Sick Call By Derrick Hernandez; Tess Datu Eliminated in Fourth Place (Php 400,000)

Tess Datu

The members of the audience are still buzzing after witnessing one of the greatest final table hands that many of them have ever seen.

Pre-flop, Derrick Hernandez raised to 200,000 and Tess Datu made the call.

Flop: {10-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}

Tess bet out 300,000, and Derrick made the call.

Turn: {4-Diamonds}

Tess fired out another 300,000 in chips, and Derrick decided to make the call.

River: {2-Hearts}

When the two of hearts landed on the river, Tess declared she was all-in for her last 867,000. Derrick tanked for a while, agonizing over his decision, and finally declared, "Call."

So what were their cards? Derrick showed {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} for ace-high, while Tess could only reveal {5-Hearts}{9-Clubs} for the gutsy bluff attempt!

Derrick had Tess covered, which means that she exits the tournament in fourth place. Tess, who is eight months pregnant and will be expecting soon, still has some consolation, though, as she gets Php 400,000 in prize money.
