The first half hour of play has been surprisingly light on the action. It took 20 minutes to reach the first showdown, and it was a fairly small pot.

About 35 minutes into the action, Tim Capretta raised from the hijack to 60,000, Joseph Cheong called from the cutoff, and Jerry Wong called from the big blind.

The flop came Jc5c3h, Wong checked, and Capretta bet 75,000. Cheong folded, and Wong called.

The turn card was the 6c, Wong checked, Capretta bet 450,000, and Wong tanked for a while before check-raising all in for 790,000.

Capretta asked for an exact count before he called with Jd10c for a pair of jacks with a ten-high flush draw. Wong turned over 5s4c for a pair of fives with an open-ended straight draw and a (now worthless) four-high flush draw.

The river card was the As, and Capretta won the pot with his pair of jacks to eliminate Wong in ninth place.

Tim Capretta  –  2,350,000  (78 bb)
Jerry Wong  –  Eliminated in 9th Place ($66,615)
