Hand 20: Ivan Tan

Button: ElkY (seat 4) – Tan pops it up to 48,000 total and after some initial interest from Dinh Le, takes it down.

Hand 19: Dinh Le

Button: Tam (seat 3) – Dinh Le raises to 53,000 total and gets no callers. In his first major live tournament, he shows he’s not intimidated by the big names around him by showing queen-high.
