Gyuhoon Kang bet 3,000,000 on the turn {j-Clubs}{j-Spades}{3-Clubs}{2-Spades} and Sorel Mizzi shoved for about 8,500,000. Kang tank-called and Mizzi was at risk.

Sorel Mizzi: {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Gyuhoon Kang:{10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

Mizzi was way out in front with his trip jacks and the {k-Diamonds} on the river sealed the pot for Mizzi.

A couple of hands later Kang was at risk preflop for his last 450,000 against Paul Lee.

Gyuhoon Kang: {a-Spades}{2-Spades}
Paul Lee: {3-Spades}{2-Hearts}

The runout was {4-Clubs}{6-Spades}{9-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} and Kang hit an ace on the river to survive.

Marasco Doubles Through Latorre, Jackson in Pain Over Decision

A massive pot was brewing on table 414.

David Jackson bet 1,000,000 on the flop {10-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}, Frank Marasco shoved all in for 5,945,000 and Jose Latorre shoved for 11,265,000. The action was back on Jackson and he was pained by the decision as he went deep into the tank.

"Is it meant for me to have all the chips," asked Jackson?

Jackson animatedly talked to himself for a few minutes before ultimately folding {5-Clubs}{5-Spades} face up for bottom set and Marasco was at risk.

Frank Marasco: {j-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Jose Latorre: {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}

Marasco held top two while Latorre was behind with top pair. The turn brought the {4-Hearts} and the river was the {5-Hearts}, which would have given Jackson quad fives.

"Oh my god, what am I doing," yelled Jackson!

Marasco scooped a massive pot and Latorre was left short, while Jackson was left wondering what could have been.
