Christopher Mo moved all in from the button for 725,000, and Kamoru Yusuf called from the big blind with Kd6c. Mo turned over Ah9c, and needed it to hold to stay alive.

The board came 9s8h2c10hJd, and Mo won the pot with a pair of nines to double up in chips.

Christopher Mo  –  1,675,000  (11 bb)
Kamoru Yusuf  –  4,075,000  (27 bb)

A few minutes later Christopher Mo moved all in UTG+1 for 1,675,000, and Peter Hsu moved all in over the top from the hijack for 15,000,000.

Kamoru Yusuf tanked for a long time in the cutoff without about 4.8 million, but he kept looking at Hsu’s massive chip stack and eventually folded.

Mo showed Kd10s, and Hsu turned over AhQc. Mo needed to improve to stay alive.

Yusuf claimed to have folded ace-king suited, which is more believable because he folded ace-king face up to a three-bet shove last night (click here for details).

Back to the present, the board came AdKcQd7h8h, and Mo flopped a gutshot straight draw, but improved no further. Hsu won the pot with two pair, aces and queens, to eliminate Mo in 23rd place.

Peter Hsu  –  17,050,000  (114 bb)
