We've seen Duy Ho raise to some rather large amounts before the flop during this event and this hand proved to be no different. Ho opened to 300,000 and it folded to Ashkan Razavi who three-bet to 740,000 from the small blind. Ho replied by shipping all in for 3,700,000 and Razavi snap called, tabling {K-Clubs}{k-Diamonds} which was far ahead of Ho's {3-Spades}{3-Hearts}.

The flop fell {5-Spades}{A-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and Razavi retained his lead with his pocket kings. Fourth street brought the {7-Spades} and Ho was in need of one of the two remaining treys in order to stay alive in this tournament. The {6-Diamonds} river did not oblige Ho and he was sent to the rail in fifth place.
