Jeffrey Lo opened the action with a raise to 65,000 from under-the-gun plus one and now flush with chips Sahashi Hideki is back to his aggressive ways and the Japanese player re-raised to 120,000 and the action was on Eugene Co in the hi-jack.
Co quickly moved all-in for 765,000 and Lo made a quick fold. Hideki thought about it before he too decided to let it go and Co padded out his stack with an extra 200,000-plus, all without showdown.
While this was going on a big hand also played out on the other table, with Yuefeng Pan opening the action from the button with a raise to 160,000. Small blind Linh Tran responded by moving all-in for 510,000 and, with chips to spare, Pan made a quick call.
Both players had pretty looking suited hands but it was Tran who would be the one to pick up his flush draw on the flop, though Pan paired his four to extend his lead in the hand slightly. It didn’t matter though and while the turn was not the heart Tran needed the river was and the Vietnamese-Canadian stacked up to 1.1 million while Pan took a hit and dropped to 2.5 million.
