In the big blind, Alan Ng called Meng Meng Zheng’s preflop raise and the two went to a flop of J♣ 7♠ 2♣. Ng appears to check it and Zheng throws out a 12,000 c-bet. Ng starts playing with his chips and puts slightly less than that in the pot and there’s some confusion over whether Ng thought he was betting or calling. Either way, Ng doesn’t seem to mind and makes the call.
On the turn 9♠ Ng opts to lead out straight away this time for another 12,900. Zheng responds with a shove to have Ng covered. Taking his time, Ng eventually tosses in one yellow chip to signal a call for his tournament life.
When cards are shown, it’s obvious Ng was an unbeliever and went for the hero call. Zheng’s 7♣ 7♥ set have Ng’s A♦ 7♦ pair of sevens crushed and drawing dead. The river 6♥ makes no difference.
Perhaps these guys had some history together on the table before or Ng was tired of folding to shoves. Either way, he’s gone from the tournament and Zheng’s stack passes the 200,000 mark.
