And then there were two. Alex Lindop has fallen at the hands of a rampant Chou Chien Fa.
Lindop limped the button, calling Fa's 150,000 preflop small blind raise and the flop fell . Fa fired a two-third pot bet on the flop, which Lindop called. The river saw the Taiwanese player fire again, and the Brit made the call once more.
The river saw Fa shove, sending Lindop deep into the tank.
"Have you got aces?" he quizzed Fa, who sat still as a statue. Eventually, Lindop reached a decision, shrugged and made the call for his tournament life.
Fa rolled over pocket fives for a rivered full house. Lindop grimaced, flashed the table for flopped trips, then shook everyone's hand and left the feature table stage, exiting in third place for a TWD 739,700 ($23,600) payday.
