Ogura Strikes Back

Takashi Ogura is still alive in this tournament, thanks to a timely cracking of aces held by Loi Van Tran. There was 30,000 in the pot preflop. The two men took a flop of {10-Hearts} {Q-Hearts} {8-Clubs}. Ogura acted first and moved in for 13,500. Tran took his time thinking out his action before calling Ogura's bet and tabling {A-Diamonds} {A-Clubs}. He was up against a royal flush draw, {A-Hearts} {J-Hearts}. Ogura filled his straight on the turn with the {K-Clubs} and his flush on the river with the {2-Hearts}. He doubled up, and knocked Tran down to 7,000 in the process.
