Christie Yau
Christie Yau finished 2nd in this event last year

Christie Yau opened to 13,000 from under the gun and the small blind player called. Aaron Flores three-bet to 100,000 from the big blind and only Yau came along to the Ts4d2d flop. Flores thought for a minute, moved all in with the bigger stack, and Yau took a few minutes to think before calling at risk for 123,000.

Flores: AhKh
Yau: KcQc

Flores was ahead with nut-no pair and Yau could not find a save on the 4s turn or As river.

Yau was our second-place finisher in this tournament last year, cashing out for $176,885.

Aaron Flores – 560,000 (93 bb)
