Ryan Chua (EPT)

Ryan Chua (EPT)

Ryan Chua who was the winner of this event last year was just involved in the biggest pot of the tournament. Chua more than tripled his stack when he was involved in a massive preflop confrontation. Chua held the best of it with Aces against the Ace King and pocket Kings of his opponents.

The board ran out clean for Chua and he is now the first player to cross the 1,000,000 mark. Chua is now leading the final 57 players. We have a sweat on our hands as we wait to see if Chua can win back to back Bar Poker Open Championship Events.

Mohsen Salha moves all in for 142,000 and Tony James makes the call. Salha shows his {ac}{Ks} and is great shape to double up against the {as}{qc} of James. The dealer fans a flop of {ah}{9s}{5h} and both players pair their ace. The turn brings the {4c} and Salha just needs to avoid a river queen to survive.

The {qd} spikes on the river, James drills the three outer. Salha sits silent in disbelief before graciously wishing the table good luck on his way to the payout cage. Salha is our 9th place finisher and will collect $655 for his efforts.

Tony James- 680,000
