Event 55: $1,000,000 Big One for One Drop

Yong Jumps Up, Morgan Falls Down

Chamath Palihapitiya and John Morgan during the bust out

Two big hands just made an end to John Morgan's tournament as he ran a huge semi bluff on Richard Yong. Yong was not going anywhere with his trips, and he's now one of the big stacks.

The flop read {10-Spades}{10-Clubs}{8-Clubs} when Yong bet 300,000. Morgan decided to raise it up to 900,000, but that wasn't enough for Yong who made it 1.9 million. Morgan didn't seem impressed, he moved all in, and Yong called his remaining chips off.

Richard Yong{10-Diamonds}{5-Spades}

Morgan was looking for a club or running straight cards in order to stay alive, and the turn was the {J-Hearts}. Morgan could still win this big pot with a seven, queen or a club, but the river was the {J-Diamonds} giving Yong a full house.

On the next hand Yong raised it up to 130,000, and John Morgan moved all in for 650,000 from the hijack. Ilya Bulychev was in the cutoff and he moved all in as well. Yong folded and we got see another heads-up showdown.

The board ran out {5-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{J-Spades}{Q-Spades}, and Bulychev's pair held up. Morgan was knocked out and we are down to 28 players.
