Wang's Two Pair Do the Job

[user162117] • Level 6: 300-600, 75 ante

You may remember Kim Gap Young from this event last year. He's the boyfriend of Team PokerStars Pro Vivian Im. Both made it down to three-handed play, where Vivian really turned the screws on Kim and put him to several tough decisions and eventually knocked him out in 3rd place.

The two are on separate tables today but that hasn't made things any easier for Kim. He recently became involved in a sizable pot with Ted Wang, formerly the Chinese language blogger for PokerStars. With 10,000 already in the pot on the turn, {2-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{10-Spades}{3-Diamonds}, Ted bet 8,500. Kim studied his hand before squeezing calling chips from between his thumb and forefinger and into the pot.

The river {7-Spades} completed several different draws. Ted thoughtfully tapped a chip on tap of his stack, indicating a check. Kim checked behind, then sighed and mucked as Ted revealed {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for top two pair.
