Sheng-Chien Cheng

There have been two quick back-to-back eliminations, with Sheng-Chien Cheng busting to Ling He, and then Howard Sun falling at the hands of the UK's Alex Lindop immediately afterward.

We did not catch the action in the Cheng bust out but arrived in time to see Lindop and Sun battle it out in the blinds. Lindop limped the small blind and Sun shoved from the big, with the Brit calling to put Sun at risk.

Alex Lindop: {q-Spades}{5-Spades}
Howard Sun: {q-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}

While Sun had the better queen, Lindop picked up a flush draw on the {2-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{j-Spades} flop, and got there on the {4-Spades} turn, leaving Sun drawing dead. The {5-Hearts} river was merely a formality and the field is now down to 14 players.
