Hong Kong’s Ken Wong is making a spirited attempt to recreate or better his 2012 Aussie Millions runner-up finish. Wong returned for Day 2 with exactly the same amount he began play with yesterday – 30,000 – though he has just padded this out courtesy of Kan Lin.
Preflop Wong opened the action from early position with a raise to 1,700 with Lin calling the small blind and Ryan Pignatelli calling from the big blind.
Both blinds check the monochrome flop over to Wong who continuation bet 2,000. Kan called and Pignatelli folded to take action heads-up to the turn.
Now Kan led out for 5,000, Wong shot him a suspicious glance before mulling over his options and deciding to call and it was off to the river, which double-paired the board.
Kan now fired out a bet of 8,000 sending Wong deep into the think tank. Eventually, Wong counted out the call and tossed it into the middle and Kan turned over for king-high, which was trailing to Wong’s .
