Philip Long


Sokchheka Pho opened to 25,000 from the hijack and Philip Long defended his big blind. The flop came down {q-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} and action checked to Pho who threw in 30,000.

Long check-raised to 125,000, Pho called and the {3-Diamonds} fell on the turn. Long fired in 145,000 and Pho swiftly called to see the {2-Diamonds} river card.

Long reached for chips and pushed in 220,000. Pho thought for a brief moment then called and Long turned over {q-Hearts}{7-Spades} for two pair. Pho slammed his hand into the muck and Long took down the massive pot on the final day.
