Ismael Bojang ends day 3 as a shortstack

In one of the last hands of the day, Dong Zhao and Ismael Bojang built a large pot on the flop and turn.

The flop was {7-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{Q-Hearts} and from the big blind, Bojang checked to Zhao on the button. The Chinese made a bet of 22,000 only to see Bojang check-raise to 65,000.

That wasn't enough for Zhao who popped it up once more and made it 165,000 to go, which left him with only 161,000 behind. Bojang made the call and the {6-Hearts} fell on the turn.

Bojang checked to his opponent and Zhao moved in for his last 161,000. Bojang took several minutes to think about it, but in the end he made the call.

Dong Zhao: {2-Hearts}{7-Hearts}
Ismael Bojang: {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs}

Zhao's seven-deuce flopped a pair and a flush draw, that improved into a flush on the turn. Bojang's top pair was drawing dead and the {7-Diamonds} on the river was meaningless.
