Final Table First Hand: Yoshimichi Doubles Up

Fan Liu

Makoto Yoshimichi rose from his seat and declared, "All-in!"

The chip leader, Fan Liu, made the call while the other players got out of their way.

Yosimichi: {A-Clubs}{6-Clubs}
Liu: {9-}{9-}

The flop {4-Spades}{5-Clubs}{7-Hearts} provided the first drama of the final table as Makoto now had an open-ended straight draw.

What came wasn't a straight but good enough to take the lead as the turn showed {A-}. The river was another seven as Makoto doubled up to around a hundred and twenty grand. Despite the hit, Liu is still the chip leader.
