Henry Lu

Main Feature Hand #112: Lu made it 1,800,000 to go from the cutoff and Garry Gates three-bet to 7,000,000 in the small blind. Lu called and the flop brought {j-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{7-Spades}. Gates continued for 4,500,000 and Lu stuck around to create a pot of nearly 25 million. After the {6-Diamonds} turn, Gates slowed down and checked, then faced a bet of 7,800,000 by Lu.

Gates spent a long time in the think tank and raised it up to give Lu the option to call all in or fold. Lu was also in the tank and counted his remaining chips. He then took off his sunglasses and glanced over at Gates, who stared at a fixed point at the table.

Lu spent nearly five minutes in the tank himself and called all in for 33,600,000 while both rails jumped to their feet as the cards were tabled.

Henry Lu: {k-Spades}{j-Spades}
Garry Gates: {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

The {8-Hearts} river sent Lu to the rail and the Thunderdome was filled with "GARRY GARRY GARRY" chants as the field was reduced to the final 10. Lu will take home $800,000 for his efforts and all remaining players now combine to one table.
