Jin For the Win


On the hand following that chop with Pekka Ikonen, Wenlong Jin was all in again, this time from the cutoff, and got a caller in Chuan Shi. Wenlong had picked up another baby pair -- {3-Hearts}{3-Spades} -- and was racing against Shi's {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}.

The flop came {3-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{A-Hearts}, and Jin was way ahead with his set. The {9-Clubs} on the turn meant the {J-Spades} river didn't matter. Jin doubled back to about 1.1 million, and Chi slipped to 1.525 million.

The Mighty Ducks Serve Jin


Wenlong Jin has been nursing his short stack for some time now, mostly folding as he waited out others' eliminations. He had pushed all in on a couple of occasions and got no callers, but just now he was all in again from the cutoff for 340,000 and Owen Crowe called from the big blind. Cards on their backs...

Crowe {Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Jin {2-Clubs}{2-Spades}

The flop came {3-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{9-Hearts}, giving Crowe a flush draw to go with his overcards. The {K-Hearts} turn added a gutshot straight draw, too. But the river was the {4-Hearts}, and Jin's ducks survived.

Jin now has around 720,000, while Crowe has slipped back to 2.7 million.

Busse Bullies


Pekka Ikonen opened with a raise to 130,000 from the cutoff seat, and it folded over to Shawn Busse in the big blind. Busse riffled his chips for a moment, then pushed out a reraise to 310,000 total.

Ikonen looked like he might be committing his stack here, but after a minute of thought tossed his hand away. Busse has around 2.5 million, and Ikonen 710,000.
