Main Event

Shin The Shorty Out


Hyung Kook Shin was one of the shorter stack in the later half of Day 3 here in the APPT Cebu Main Event. His tournament has recently come to an end in 12th place as we are left just two spots away from the final table.

Shin opened it up to 18,000 from middle position and Kanaan three-bet to 45,000 on the button. It was now back on Shin and he would eventually four-bet shove his stack in. Kannan made the snap-call and the two players turned their hands over.

Kanaan: {7-Spades}{7-Diamonds}
Shin: {a-Spades}{q-Clubs}

The board ran out {4-Hearts}{8-Spades}{k-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{3-Clubs}, no help for Shin meaning he was sent packing with a PHP 329,500 consolation prize.
