Yong Liu

A huge pot developed between a couple big stacks when Yong Liu opened to 150,000 from middle position, Oscar Lindo called next to act, and Andrew Pacifico called in the big blind. The flop came Kc8d6c and Liu continued for 100,000 after Pacifico checked.

Lindo folded, Pacifico called, and the turn came 5d. Pacifico checked again, Liu bet 235,000 and Pacifico checked-raised to 805,000. Liu moved all in for his 1,400,000 behind and Pacifico called.

Pacifico: 9c7c
Liu: 5s5c

Liu looked a little ill when he saw the hands. His turned set was behind Pacifico’s turned straight and he could not find a river boat on the 7h river for the surprising exit.

Andrew Pacifico – 6,600,000 (110 bb)
Yong Liu – Eliminated in 9th place ($7,098)
