Ping Liu

Arkadiy Tsinis opened to 55,000 from the cutoff and Ping Liu called in the big blind. The flop was KdQd2d and both players checked. The turn was Kh, Liu bet 65,000 and Tsinis called. The board finished with the 2h river and Liu put out a big 280,000 bet leaving about 400,000 behind. Tsinis thought for a minute and tossed in a calling chip.

Tsinis: QhJc
Liu: JhTh

Tsinis was best with two pair, kings and queens, to take the big pot.

Soon after, Jared Jaffee raised to 60,000 from the button and Liu moved all in for 375,000 from the big blind. Jaffee called and the hands were tabled.

Jaffee: As9d
Liu: KsQh

Liu was live but missed the entire 8c3c3d7d7h low board to exit in fourth place.

Ping Liu

Ping Liu opened to 40,000 from the cutoff and picked up calls from Arkadiy Tsinis on the button and Jonathan Jaffe in the big blind. The flop came KdTc7h, Jaffe checked, Liu bet 40,000 and Tsinis raised to 120,000. Jaffe folded, Liu called, and the turn came 9d.

Liu thought for a couple of minutes and moved all in for 330,000. Tsinis pulled out chips and called after a short think himself.

Liu: KsTh
Tsinis: KhJd

Liu was ahead with his flopped two pair kings and tens against Tsinis’ paired king. The river was the 5s and Liu doubled up.

Ping Liu – 1,050,000 (53 bb)

On the fourth hand of the day, Ping Liu opened to 55,000 from the button and Arkadiy Tsinis three-bet to 160,000 from the small blind. Maria Ho moved all in for 210,000 from the big blind, Liu folded and Tsinis called.

Tsinis: Ah9s
Ho: 7h7s

Ho was ahead and needed to win the race to stay it the game. The bad news came for her right on the 9c3h2c flop. Tsinis paired his nine to take the lead and Ho could not catch up on the Th turn or 6c river to exit in fifth place.

Arkadiy Tsinis – 960,000 (48 bb)
