Albert Daher

Albert Daher open-shoved for 96,000 from the cutoff and Schahin Ghiai thought about coming along from the button. He peeked at Zhi Cheng Wu’s stack and then folded. Moshe Shabat folded his small blind and Cheng Wu called in the big.

Cheng Wu: Ad6s
Daher: Th9h

Daher had two live cards to double up, the flop came Ah9d6c, and Cheng Wu stayed in the lead with two pair, aces and sixes.

“Hearts!” Daher asked.

A heart came 6h turn.

“Not that one,” Daher said as Cheng Wu made a boat. Daher caught his flush on the Kh river but it was too little too late to save his spot.

Zhi Cheng Wu – 976,000 (122 bb)
