Level 8: 400/800 (800)
It was all in before the flop when Ahmad Kheil limped early to start things off before Jianyi Liu raised to 2,000 from the middle. Small blind Ian Tabone shoved for 9,200 which pushed Kheil off his hand while Liu called it off with more.
Liu was in good shape with K♣T♠ against 6♦5♦ for Tabone. Liu flopped a straight draw, but Tabone had four to a flush. Liu called for a jack and the turn 9♣ was a brick, but the river J♦ technically fulfilled his request to give him the straight, but the diamond was the wrong suit as it gave Tabone the flush.
“Not that Jack, please,” Liu joked as Tabone was collecting his double.
Ian Tabone – 21,000
Jianyi Liu – 45,000
