Event #3 $25,000 Short Deck
Paul Phua limped for 60,000 with , called by Aaron Van Blarcum with . Cutoff Thai Ha upped it to 275,000 with , called by both limpers.
A heck of a flop followed: – the nut straight for Van Blarcum and middle set for Phua (whose stack has kept creeping up in the last ten minutes). Phua led out for 500,000 and Van Blarcum shipped in his whole 1,305,000. Ha folded faster than the naked eye could see, and Phua made the call to see he was in a virtual flip.
The turn brought an instant boat for Phua, and his hand improved to the mighty quads on the river.
