Richard Yong Eliminated in 3rd Place (€400,000)

Richard Yong - 3rd Place

After Mike Watson folded from the button, Richard Yong raised all in from the small blind for 385,000.

"Sh*t, this is a really bad hand," said John Juanda when he looked at his cards. "How much more is it?"

Juanda got the count of how much more, then said, "I guess I have to," and tossed in the call.

Juanda held the {J-Clubs}{4-Spades} and was up against the {8-Diamonds}{5-Hearts} for Yong.

On the flop, the {Q-Clubs}{J-Spades}{10-Hearts} fell, and Juanda added a pair of jacks. Yong wasn't out of it yet, as he picked up a straight draw.

The turn brought the {4-Diamonds}, which left Yong needing just a nine on the river to double up. One last burn card, then the {2-Clubs} landed and officially eliminated Yong in third place. He earned €400,000 for his finish while Watson and Juanda were left to battle for the title.
