Making table six the feature table is paying off dividends and the action has been almost non-stop. Phil Ivey gets the ball rolling and bumps it up to 12,500 from the button only to see our favourite protagonist, Jun Wei Liu, come over the top with a re-raise from the small blind.

However, the action doesn’t end there and JC Tran moves all-in for 43,500 from the big blind. After Ivey gets out of the way the cards go on their backs.

JC Tran: A 10
Jun Wei Liu: K K

Liu has the best hand pre-flop for the second time in a row, which is bad news for Tran, who is fighting for his tournament life and in need of some serious help.

He duly receives it when the flop comes down A 2 10 to give him top two pair, though the turn is a very sweaty Q to give Liu a gutshot draw in addition to the deck’s two remaining Kings. The 2 pairs the river, and while this gives Liu two pair, it’s still not good enough to beat Tran’s Aces-up and he doubles-up to 99,500.
