As we entered the massive tournament room we walked into Wesley Wong who we had seen sitting down not too long ago. He, still with a smile on his face, told us what had happened.
In the first hand, he got involved with and flopped well on with two hearts. His opponent checked and Wong bet 1,400. His opponent check-raised to 4,000 and Wong called. The hit the turn and his opponent bet 7,000. Wong called again and saw his opponent check on the river. Wong bet 8,600 and his rival called with for the turned flush.
That straight proved no good and neither would his second one.
This time there was a raise and three calls before Wong over called from the button with off suit. A player in the blinds called as well and the flop came giving Wong the straight. A player in middle position bet 1,400 and Wong raised to 4,000. Action folded back to the initial bettor and he called. The on the turn made for a second flush draw and Wong shoved for 13,000 after his opponent checked. His competitor called with and send Wong packing after the on the river paired the board.
