Andrew Ling makes it 20000 and with about 58000, Maurice Norohna moves all-in. Ling makes the call.
Norohna v. Ling
So Norohna ahead preflop and the flop keeps him ahead. The turn widens the gap but the card that Norohna did not want to see pops up on the river giving his thus far dominated opponent the upper hand in the end. Maurice Norohna will exit the tournament in 3rd place courtesy that beat on the river.
After being involved in several action hands, Patrick M gets eliminated in the following hand:-
Patrick M with approximately 68000 chips moves all-in preflop and gets one caller in Andrew Ling.
Ling v. Patrick
So Ling hits his Queen on the river and in taking down that pot, he ensures that the Patrick is knocked out in 4th place. And with that, we are in the money!
Patrick M bets out 21500 before the flop and Maurice Norohna goes all-in. Patrick makes the call.
So Patrick's pair of Queens betters to a Queen-high straight on the river.
From the dealer button, Andrew Ling raises to 15000 and Patrick M from the big blind makes the call.
The flop gets a check from Patrick and Ling makes it 20000. An instacall from Patrick to see the turn and a check again by Patrick to which Ling bets 50000. Once more a quick call from Patrick and on the river , after Patrick's check, Ling moves all-in.
While Patrick folds, he does show his hand and Ling too shows . So both players ending up with busted flush draws but Andrew Ling was still ahead on that board had it come to a showdown.
Preflop action has Rakesh Sharma moving all-in with his stack of 41000. Action folds around to Maurice Norohna who shows pockets Sevens but refuses to be the one to chip Sharma up.
Patrick M eventually decides to oblige and turns over against Sharma's .
The flop spells doom for Sharma as Patrick hits his set of Ladies. Needing a Four and only a Four to make a fullhouse, Sharma is left stranded as the turn and river do not accomodate his miracle.
End of the road for Rakesh Sharma as he will exit the tournament in 5th place. It's now down to 4-way action and one more elimination will bust the money bubble. Who will be that unfortunate soul??
Preflop Maurice Norohna raises it to 13000 and gets a call from Andrew Ling. They see a flop of and here Ling makes it 20000 and gets min-raised to 40000. Ling makes the call to see the turn .
