Christopher Trang

Christopher Trang opened to 350,000 from under the gun and Maxime Heroux three-bet to 895,000 from the small blind. Trang called to put himself at risk and the two players tabled their hands.

Christopher Trang: {A-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{9-Spades}
Maxime Heroux; {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}

Heroux had the preflop advantage and Trang needed to improve in order to preserve his tournament life. He picked up some additional outs on the {8-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Diamonds} flop, but the {K-Diamonds} turn gave Heroux a commanding lead, and the {A-Diamonds} river was too little too late for Trang, so Heroux took the pot to end Trang's deep run in this event in fifth place for $44,677.
