Eugene Co Eliminated in 5th Place (HK$421,400)

RazorSharpPro • Level 21: 50,000-100,000, 15,000 ante
Eugene Co enjoyed a deep run, but his final table is now over

Danny Tang surprised Sparrow Cheung after limping the small blind with {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs} but Cheung did not get out of line so the pot was a small one. However, the hand that followed was definitely not a small one and it saw Eugene Co’s time at the final table come to a close.

Down to 1.8 million Co moved all-in from under-the-gun and the action folded around to Sparrow Cheung on the button who asked for a count. Cheung looked sorely tempted but then eyed up the big stack of Je Ho Lee, who was sitting in the big blind, and decided to let it go.

It was as well that he did and after Lim Chin Wei folded out the small blind, Lee called instantly and Co found himself in a great deal of trouble.

Eugene Co: {a-Clubs}{5-Spades}
Je Ho Lee: {k-Clubs}{k-Spades}

Just like a lot of the hands yesterday Lee is catching cards at the perfect time and Cheung definitely dodged a bullet there and told us he folded ace-jack.

The {5-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} flop left Co needing to hit running fives to stay alive and the likelihood of that was a slim one. The {8-Hearts} turn left the Filipino drawing dead and he got to his feet, shook everyone’s hand and prepared to exit the tournament area. The {j-Spades} completed the hand and Co’s tournament and he headed off to collect the equivalent of $53,945.

That pot gives Lee a commanding lead and the Korean is now sitting on a stack in excess of 10 million in chips.
