With 4,700 in the pot and {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{2-Hearts} on the board, Sean Perry was all in for 13,600.

The river was {7-Hearts} with no help for Perry and Davies claimed victory in Round 1.

Set of Queens for Weng

ajlamers • Level 4: 600-1,200, 0 ante

Stephen Chidwick opened to 2,200 on the button and Bin Weng stuck in a three-bet to 10,000 from the big blind. Chidwick responded with a four-bet to 24,000 and Weng just called.

The flop of {q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} hit the felt and Weng check-called a bet of 12,000 from Chidwick. The turn was the {8-Clubs} and both players checked to the {a-Diamonds} on the river. Weng led out with a sizeable bet of 77,000 which put Chidwick into the tank. After a few minutes, Chidwick finally called and Weng tabled {q-Spades}{q-Clubs} for a set of queens and scooped the pot.
