Hideki Still Leads; Siow Wins One

RazorSharpPro • Level 3: 800-1,600, 200 ante
Choon Tong Siow

The chip leader is still Suncity Cup leg three frontrunner Sahashi Hideki who came in with a monster 374,200 stack after crushing the Taipei event and the Japanese player looks to have padded this out further and climbed to over 400,000.

Another massive stack is Day 1E front-runner Weizhou Zha and he is seated to Hideki’s direct left so there may well be some potential fireworks later on and should the two tangle in a big pot the man who emerges victorious will have a gigantic stack.

As it is though the two are staying out of each other’s way presently and it was tablemate Andrew An who opened the action in this particular hand, making it 3,500 to go from under-the-gun and Malaysia’s Choon Tong Siow made the call from UTG+1. Hideki and Zha folded out the blinds and it was heads-up to a flop of {5-Hearts}{6-Spades}{10-Clubs}.

An checked it over to Siow who wasted no time in getting his last 40,000 in chips in the middle and An made a speedy fold leaving Siow free to pad out his stack without showdown.
