HK$500,000 Short Deck Ante-Only

Sass Finally Seizes Some Chips

Jan_Kores • Level 8: 0-0, 6,000 ante

Tom Dwan raised to 50,000 under the gun, earning a call from Ben Lamb in the hijack. Alan Sass shoved his 360,000 out of the cutoff and Dwan reraised all in, making it 610,000. Lamb folded his {K-Hearts}{Q-Hearts}.

Sass: {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}
Dwan: {Q-Clubs}{J-Clubs}

Dwan caught an open-ender on {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{10-Spades} but the rest of the board ran out {10-Clubs} and {7-Diamonds} to hold Sass' hand ahead. Sass, who is on his sixth entry, doubled to 788,000 and stayed in contention. The registration has been closed at the start of the eighth level so Sass wouldn't be able to fire one more shell if he fell again.
