Tsang Takes a Commanding Lead

Level 26 : 30,000-60,000, 0 ante

Anson Tsang limped in with the {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} and Ilya Bulychev checked his option with the {J-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{3-Clubs}. They checked the {A-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{Q-Spades} flop and the {2-Hearts} turn was checked by Tsang Bulychev bet 80,000 and Tsang's check-raise to 240,000 won the pot in a battle of the two chip leaders.

Tsang raised to 140,000 first to act soon after with the {K-Clubs}{J-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{10-Hearts} and Bulychev flat-called on the button with the {A-Clubs}{7-Spades}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs}. Quan Zhou in the small blind raised the pot to 620,000 with the {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{4-Hearts}. Jason Gray snap-folded in the big blind and Tsang went for it to four-bet to 2,060,000.

Bulychev quickly folded and Zhou, who had half of his stack in already, was sent into the think tank. He was already in a similar spot at the end of day 2 and folded after more than four minutes, this time he did so after three minutes.
