The Biggest So Far


We are sure this won't be the last time we say the words "the biggest hand of the tournament," but hey, it's what we just witnessed, so we don't how else to put it.

It all started when Wei Zhong Kua opened it up from the hijack. The player in the small blind made the call and then Kenneth Leong three-bet an extra 2,900 from the big blind. Back on Kua and he would four-bet another 9,000 and Leong made the call.

On the {6-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds} flop, both players opted to check and a {3-Diamonds} hit the turn. The board featured all diamonds now and Leong would lead for 10,000. Kua then quickly popped it to 25,000. Leong made the call and the {a-Clubs} river completed the board.

This time Leong would slow down, opting to tap the table and send the action to Leong. It didn't take long for Kua to shove all in, having his opponent covered by a short amount.

Kua looked crushed. He painfully thought for more than five minutes, apologizing to the table several times. Eventually he would let his hand go, tabling {qd{q-Clubs} before sliding them into the muck. With that hand, Kua becomes the chip leader.
