Choi Takes It With Double Barrel

Inwook Choi raised to 48,000 from the small blind and J.C. Tran made the call in the big blind.

The flop arrived {Q-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} and Choi fired 50,000. Tran made the call.

The turn was the {9-Hearts} and Choi fired 105,000 which was enough to force a fold from Tran and take down the pot.

During the last break, David Steicke told Andrew Scott that he thought the tournament might end this level. He was definitely right about one thing -- his tournament would end this level.

Steicke opened the pot to 48,000 preflop. Action passed to Inwook Choi. He put in a re-raise to 148,000. Steicke announced that he was all-in and Choi snap-called.

Steicke: {9-?} {9-?}
Choi: {K-?} {K-?}

For the second time at this final table, nines took on kings in an all-in battle. This time Choi's kings held up, {3-Hearts} {3-Clubs} {A-Diamonds} {3-?} {K-?}, sending Steicke to the rail in 4th place. Only three players remain.

Another Unusual Hand

It looks like David Steicke thought he might have been able to bluff Inwook Choi out of a pot. Steicke called Choi's raise to 26,000 and then acted first on all streets. Each player checked the {k-Clubs} {10-Clubs} {6-Diamonds} flop. When the turn came {5-Diamonds}, Steicke checked again. Choi fired for 32,000 but couldn't shake the sticky Steicke.

The river was the {Q-Diamonds}, a card that filled a number of draws. Steicke led out for 54,000 and was quickly called by Choi. Steicke did not seem to have much of anything. Choi showed {Q-Spades} {2-Spades} for a pair of queens to win the pot.

Inwook Choi completed from the small blind and David Steicke checked his option in the big blind.

{A-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Diamonds} was the flop and Choi took a stab with a minimum bet of 12,000. Steicke made the call.

The turn was the {5-Diamonds} and both checked before the {4-Hearts} landed on the river to put a straight on board. Choi checked and Steicke fired 40,000 to force a fold from his opponent and take it down.

Allain Can't Get Value

It was a curious hand between J.C. Tran and Adrien Allain. Tran opened for 30,000, then called Allain's preflop re-raise to 120,000 from the small blind. The action checked all the way down on a board of {k-Spades} {3-Spades} {10-Clubs} {4-Diamonds} {4-Clubs}, with Allain's {9-?} {9-?} being enough to drag the pot.
