Event 20: Elias Reads Jin's Soul

$3300 + $200 WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship NLH

Jin Hwang opened for 275k utg+2, then Darren Elias (on his immediate left) raised to 650k.  Jin gave it some thought, then called.

The flop came K♣T♣3 and both players checked.

Turn was the 4.  Jin announced he was all-in (he had Darren covered).

Darren tanked for a few minutes, then made the call all-in (2.095 million exactly).

Jin showed Q♣9♣ for the gutshot, flush draw, and gut-shot straight-flush draw.

Darren rolled over pocket Queens for the lead, needing to fade any club or Jack.

River was the 2.

Darren doubled up to over 5.5 million.  Jin was left with ~1.3 million.

One more hand was played, then the level expired and players were sent on a 75 minute dinner break. 

Play will resume at about 8:30 pm.
