Yueqi Zhu

Yueqi Zhu and Ben Ross went heads-up to a flop of {3-Spades}{7-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}. Zhu bet and Ross called.

Zhu bet again on the {10-Hearts} turn before Ross raised. Zhu called to see the river.

Ross bet in the dark before the dealer turned over the {5-Clubs}. Zhu spent a few moments considering the decision.

"You can't win. You took too long," Ross told him before Zhu eventually called.

"Set," Ross announced, turning over {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts} to win the pot.

A few hands later, Zhu called a pre-flop raise from Michael Moncek. The flop came {4-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{5-Spades} and Zhu check-raised, leaving himself around 300,000 behind.

Moncek called and they got the rest of Zhu's chips in the middle on the {a-Diamonds} turn.

Yueqi Zhu: {k-Diamonds}{2-Spades}
Michael Moncek: {k-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}

Moncek was ahead with a pair of fives, while Zhu needed to complete a straight draw. The river came the {6-Hearts} and the last remaining bracelet winner in the field was eliminated.

Moncek and Ross are taking a quick break before the start of heads-up play.
