As the shortest stack Danny Tang would need a double to bring himself back into contention so when Je Ho Lee opened the action with a raise to 300,000 from the button Tang decided to make a stand and moved all-in for his last 2.65 million from the small blind. Lee called quickly and the cards were turned over.
Je Ho Lee:
It was a race, and it was one Lee took the lead in on the monochrome flop, though Tang was still drawing live with 11 outs and any heart or deuce would see him double. Tang’s watching rail pressed close calling for a heart but the turn was of no help and neither was the river. Tang shook Lee and Cheung’s hands and headed off to collect the equivalent of $82,300 and Lee stacked up to 13,250,000 to Cheung’s 8,830,000.
The two remaining players are once again crunching the numbers and talking deals.
