Event #4: $5,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Ho Triples, Fohrenbach Survives, Ross Suffers

[user80015] • Level 27: 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante

From the button, Maria Ho pushed her last 355,000 into the pot only to have Ricky Fohrenbach three-bet shove from the small blind for 750,000.

Chip leader Thomas Ross went deep into the tank contemplating a decision before suddenly announcing a call.

Ho: {K-Hearts}{6-Hearts}
Fohrenbach: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
Ross: {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}

With Ross in the lead and holding the chips to potentially send two players to the rail and the final nine to the final table, the {K-Spades}{6-Clubs}{Q-Hearts} saw his lead slip as Ho took soared ahead with top and bottom two pair.

The turn of the {5-Hearts} furthered Ho's lead, and when the {J-Clubs} completed the board, Ho soared with the triple to over 1.1 million as Fohrenbach pushed out to 790,000.
