Richard Yong (Day 2 )

Mere moments after David Benefield fell, a sudden confrontation between Ole Schemion and Richard Yong saw the end of Yong's tournament life.

Yong opened with a raise to 52,000 from early position and it folded to Schemion who made it 118,000 to go. Action folded back to Yong who moved all in and Schemion snapped him off, rolling over {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}. Yong shook his head and showed {A-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}. The action happened so quickly that we were unable to get a count on Yong's stack, but it looked to be somewhere around 900,000.

Yong flopped a ray of hope when the dealer fanned {6-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, giving him a diamond draw to double up. Ultimately, nothing materialized on the turn ({6-Spades}) or the river ({2-Hearts}). Yong was eliminated and Schemion scooped up a massive pot, bringing him to 2.175 million.
