Event #8: $1,500 Millionaire Maker No-Limit Hold'em

Up and Down

[user38873] • Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

We just noticed one of the bigger stacks in the room and it belongs to Matt Newcombe, who has pretty much 300,000 in chips. Wang Cheng was there not that long ago, but he has since dropped to 180,000. The latest hand saw him with {A-Spades}{10-Spades} versus {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} and both suited aces had some sweat as the board ran out {K-Spades}{8-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{K-Hearts}.

Julian Thomas lost pocket tens versus {A-}{Q-} and has been cut in half.
