Jeon's Set Bests Lam's Two Pair


When we arrived at the table, Seungsoo Jeon had 18,000 in front of him on the {K-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{8-Clubs} flop. Gary Lam made the call, and the dealer dealt the {4-Hearts} on the turn. Jeon fired 38,000, and Lam made the call.

The {A-Spades} then completed the board on the river, and Jeon slowed down with a check. Lam bet 55,000, and Jeon made the call.

Lam turned over the {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades} for top two pair, but that was no good against the {8-Diamonds}{8-Spades} for Jeon, who had flopped bottom set.

Kanaan Keeps Climbing

Michael Kanaan won the ANZPT Sydney event back in 2011, and he's in great shape to add a ACOP Macau title to that list. Even though that's still far away Kanaan has amassed a big stack putting him currently in second place.

Just now we witnessed Kanaan pick up a nice one after check-raising the flop. The flop read {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{9-Hearts} when Kanaan checked to a player who fired out 15,300. The player on the button called and Kanaan check-raised to 37,000. Both his opponents folded and Kanaan raked in the pot.

On the very next hand Kanaan raised to 4,000 and the big blind called. The flop brought {8-Hearts}{10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds} and Kanaan's opponent check-called 5,000. On the turn the {7-Spades} hit and Kanaan picked up the pot with a 11,000-chip bet.

Kanaan has been in control of his table for quite some time, and he will probably not slow down any time soon!

Another Big Clash Between Sass and Gaw

Alan Sass on the losing end of this one
Alan Sass on the losing end of this one

Alan Sass and Andrew Gaw have been doing their fair share of battling with one another here on Day 3. It all began early in the day with a big, big clash between the two that was an aces-versus-kings confrontation where Sass spiked a king to double up in a big way. In the following hand, the two collided again in what turned out to be a massive pot worth nearly 340,000 in chips.

From the cutoff seat, Gaw opened with a raise to 4,500 before play folded over to Sass in the big blind. Sass put in a reraise and made it 15,000 to go. With the action back on Gaw, he took his time, then reraised to 41,500. Immediately, Sass announced that he was all in. Gaw seemed very surprised by the move at first and looked as though he didn't like it. He kind of shook his head and then called after a couple of seconds.

When the cards were turned up, it was another war between two big pairs with Sass' {Q-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs} behind the {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs} for Gaw. Gaw was the player at risk in the hand, and his entire stack of 167,700 in chips was on the line.

On the flop, the {9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{3-Hearts} fell, and Gaw's kings stayed in front. The turn brought the {2-Clubs}, and now Sass was down to just the river card to spike a queen and win the hand.

In the aforementioned hand from earlier in the day, Sass was able to hit his two-outer king to crack Gaw's aces, but it wouldn't be this time when the {A-Spades} landed on the river. Gaw's kings held up, and he won the pot to move back to a massive stack with very solid position in the tournament as the field approaches the money. Sass was left with just under 200,000 in chips.
