Jun Ong Eliminated in 26th Place ($4,832)
Level 18 : 6,000-12,000, 0 ante
Kevin Lizak raised in middle position and Jun Ong went all in for 17,500 in the next position. Hod Berman made it 23,500 in the cutoff and Venkata Tayi cold-called on the button. The blinds folded and Lizak called, so there were three players involved in a side pot.
The flop came and Lizak checked. Berman bet with 7,000 behind and Tayi raised. Lizak got out of the way and Berman called all in for less.
Berman had his opponent's nearly drawing dead with top set and the turn and the river were insignificant. Ong was eliminated and Berman gets a well-needed triple up.
