The action is coming to the boil on the 2017 Suncity Cup final table and there has been a third elimination with Taiwan’s Chien Jenyen the latest player to fall. Jenyen went out swinging, moving all-in for close to 2.5 million from the button over the top of a Sparrow Cheung middle position open. Cheung called immediately and the cards were turned over.

Sparrow Cheung: {q-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Chien Jenyen: {10-Hearts}{10-Spades}

It’s a little unlucky to run a decent sized pocket pair into a bigger one when play is short-handed and Jenyen was the at-risk player, though should Cheung lose he would not be left with all that many chips. As it was the board ran out {9-Spades}{2-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{k-Clubs} to give Cheung close to a double-up, which he celebrated with a fist bump with neighbor Danny Tang, while Jenyen headed for the cage to collect the equivalent of $44,640.
