Wong on the Brink of Elimination

Just before the level up, we had a monster pot develop that left Nick Wong crippled. On a board reading f {J-Hearts}{K-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{7-Spades}, Wong led out for 5,500 and was called by Winfred Yu. Phil Ivey then raised to 18,000, Wong three-bet 48,500, Yu folded, and Ivey four-bet to 118,000. Wong made the call and then checks the {K-Diamonds} river.

Ivey pauses, stares down his opponent, and then announces an all in. Wong makes the call and discovers that his {4-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} full house was no good against Ivey's {7-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} boat. The stacks were close, and after they were counted down it was discovered that Wong was left with just 10,500.

Interestingly, Ivey had lost a monster pot yesterday in the Main Event when he flopped a set of fours but lost to a set of sevens. This time he was on the good end of things.
