Okada Pays off Co; Last Five Hands

RazorSharpPro • Level 9: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante

We caught the tail end of a hand that looked like an interesting one between Japan’s Ken Okada and the Philippines Eugene Co with 60,000 in the pot with the community cards spread {5-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{6-Spades}.

We arrived as Okada checked the action over to Co, who cut out a stack of chips and bet out 37,000. Okada clearly did not believe the Filipino player and made the call. Co rolled over {a-Spades}{3-Hearts} for trip threes and Okada tapped the table and mucked, dropping to 260,000 while Co climbed to 420,000.

Yu Dong drew the final number of hands for the day and the magic number was five with Day 2B concluding after this. Pete Chen will not be bagging up chips however as his seat is now empty, though one of the field’s other Chen's – Canlin Chen – looks like he should make it as he now has a stack of 190,000.
