Kristopher Tong raised from the button, and Matthew Ashton put in a reraise from the small blind. Tong called, and the dealer fanned out a flop of {q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{3-Spades}. Ashton bet out, and Tong made the call. The turn brought the {10-Hearts}, and the two players got in a raising war that saw all of Ashton's chips get in the middle.

Tong: {j-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{2-Spades}
Ashton: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}{k-Spades}{8-Spades}

Tong had caught an inside straight draw to get the better of Ashton, who was looking for a jack and a jack only to survive. Unfortuantely for him, the river was the {5-Spades}, knocking the Brit out in third place, and getting us to our heads up battle!
