Ben Yu

James Capucci jammed his last 980,000 in from under the gun. Three seats over, Ben Yu re-shoved. Nobody else joined the clash, and the cards went face-up.

James Capucci: {A-Spades}{10-Hearts}
Ben Yu: {J-Spades}{J-Clubs}

Capucci spiked an ace on the {9-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{5-Spades}{2-Spades}{K-Spades} board, earning a double through Yu, who dropped down to 565,000.

A few hands later, Yu raised to 425,000, leaving himself only about 120,000 behind. Harry Lodge moved all in, forcing folds from the remaining players. Yu called off his remainder to put himself at risk.

Ben Yu: {Q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}
Harry Lodge: {A-Spades}{A-Hearts}

Lodge woke up with aces, and Yu couldn't beat the bullets as the board ran out {6-Spades}{8-Spades}{5-Hearts}{Q-Spades}{A-Clubs}.
