Michael Cua
Mustafa Fawaz

Hong Kong’s David Steicke opens the action with a raise to 16,000 from the cutoff and a short-stacked Michael Cua moves all in from the small blind for his last 25,000. Unfortunately for Cua, while Stiecke was just trying to steal from late position Mustafa Fawaz wakes up with a hand in the big blind and moves all in to isolate. Steicke bows out and the cards go on their backs.

Michael Cua: J 8
Mustafa Fawaz: A Q

Cua needs to hit if he is to stand a chance of repeating his 2010 APT Philippines victory, but it Fawaz who catches a piece of the 3 10 8 A K board and we lose Cua who departs in 18th place.
