Preflop, Phil Ivey limp-called Michael Soyza's raise to 370,000 with [Qh6h]. Soyza, with [Kd9h], bet the [6s7h7c] flop when Ivey checked to him, and his opponent called. Both players checked the [Jh] turn, but Ivey led out for 1,200,000 on the [Kh] river, having made his flush on the same
Michael Soyza called in the hijack with [QcQh]. Wai Kiat Lee shipped his last 2,585,000 all in with [TsJs] and Soyza made the call. This was the second time Soyza had Lee all in and at risk, and this time he was to bust his tenacious opponent. The board ran
Wai Kiat Lee has given a few chips back to Michael Soyza (his doubler earlier), seeing an unraised flop of [Qs7cqd]. Soyza had called with [KcQc] and flopped trips, while Lee on the button held [Kh9c]. Neither player bet the flop, but Soyza led for 150,000 on the [9h] turn.
There was a limp-check preflop, Phil Ivey holding [KdTd] vs. Michael Soyza on the button with [Js6h]. After a [tc9sjd] flop was checked through, Soyza bet 100,000 on the [7h] turn. Ivey called, then led out for 300,000 on the [8c] river, which saw a quick fold from Soyza.
Wai Kiat Lee is the new chip-leader three-handed. While Phil Ivey appears to be taking somewhat of a back seat at this juncture, Lee and Michael Soyza have been tangling plenty. Most recently Soyza, with [Acjd], raised to 400,000 in the cutoff, called by Lee on the button with [KdJs].
Michael Soyza called 100,000 in the cutoff with [Acqc], then a further 300,000 after button Wai Kiat Lee raised, holding [JhTh]. The flop - [AsJcJs] - saw Soyza check-call a bet of 250,000. Both players checked the [Ks] turn, Soyza leading for 200,000 on the [8s] river. Lee just called
Preflop, Wai Kiat Lee limped [Ah8h]. Michael Soyza raised to 500,000 holding [ThTd], making the call when Lee shipped his whole 2,500,000 stack in the middle. Lee flopped an ace, which stayed ahead over the [Jsac8sjhqh] runout, leaving him short stacked no longer. "I tried, Phil," said Soyza, of his attempt
Wai Kiat Lee called preflop with [QsJh], folding to a button raise from Michael Soyza ([JcTs]). Immediately thereafter, cutoff Soyza called with [qc8d] and Lee checked his [9h9d]. Soyza check-called two streets having hit middle pair on a [Kc8s6h] flop, first 75,000 here and then 125,000 on the [Ks] turn.
Hijack Michael Soyza called for 80,000 with [As8s], Lee came along for the ride, but button Phil Ivey, with [6c7c], raised to 380,000. Back to the chip leader, who, having none of it, simply set both of his opponents all in. No callers. Ivey did pick up [AdJd] and [AsKh] in
Seth Davies made it 800,000 to go in the cutoff (from a total stack of two million) with [As7s], running smack into button Michael Soyza's [AdQc]. He was set in and at-risk in moments. The board had him drawing to a chop only by the turn: [Kd9dJcQh], but the river
