An absolutely huge hand has recently gone down at the final table that ate into 5-minutes of the end of level break, and it was a doozy.
It was Lim Chin Wei who lit the fuse on a hand that would sizzle slowly before culminating in an explosion of action. Wei made it 250,000 to go from under-the-gun and Je Ho Lee called from the button. Danny Tang called from the small blind and then Sparrow Cheung squeezed to 1 million in the big blind.
Wei moved all in for 4.35 million and Lee looked pained by the decision and tanked for several minutes before folding (we’ll tell you what he had below) and Tang got out of the way. Cheung however, could not get his chips over the line fast enough.
Lim Chin Wei:
That’s the second time Cheung has woken up with pocket queens when an opponent has pocket tens and the run out saw Cheung win the monster pot, while Wei was left with just 6.5 big blinds. Je Ho Lee told the table he folded pocket jacks after the dust had settled.
