APPT Macau 2007: Hands 62 - 77
Hand 77: Ivan Tan
Button: Patry (seat 7) – Kim raises to 90,000, Tan reraises a further 250,000, and there’s no call from the Korean player.
Hand 76: Ivan Tan
Button: Le (seat 6) – A pre-flop raise ensures Ivan Tan another pot.
Hand 75: ElkY Grospellier
Button: ElkY (seat 4) – ElkY is all-in for 180,000 and collects the blinds and antes, now worth 70,000 each hand (blinds are at 15,000/30,000 with a 5000 ante).
Hand 74: Split – Tan/Patry
Button: Tan (seat 9) – Patry raises 75,000 from first position, and Tan calls. It’s just the second flop since dinner, and comes 5h 9d Jh. Patry bets 155,000, Tan puts Patry all-in and is called. Both players show K Q, and it’s split on a board of 5h 9d Jh 5s 4h.
Hand 73: Dinh Le
Button: Kim (seat 8) – Dinh Le bumps it up to 130,000, and gets it done. Raise, fold, raise, fold, raise, fold has been the pattern since the break.
Hand 72: Guillaume Patry
Button: Patry (seat 7) – Patry gets it all-in (270,000), Tan requests a count but eventually mucks.
Hand 71: ElkY Grospellier
Button: Le (seat 6) – ElkY is all-in for 175,000, but no-one’s interested in the action.
Button: ElkY (seat 4) – this time it’s Dinh Le raising it up (105,000), and he hauls in the blinds and antes. It’s going to be an enthralling evening, with the three ‘amateurs’ – Kim, Dinh Le and Tan almost level in chips, and the two Team PokerStars players short-stacked.
Hand 69: Sangkyoun Kim
Button: Tan (seat 9) – In a carbon copy of the previous hand, Kim pops it up 80,000 and takes it down.
Hand 68: Sangkyoun Kim
Button: Kim (seat 8) – Kim raises to 80,000, and the blinds fold to give Kim his first pot since eliminating William Tam.
Hand 67: Guillaume Patry
Button: Patry (seat 7) – A raise of 70,000 gets it done for Patry.
Hand 66: Ivan Tan
Button: Le (seat 6) – Tan is straight back into action with a pre-flop raise of 84,000 and takes down another pot.
Hand 65: Ivan Tan
Button: ElkY (seat 4) – Tan raises an extra 80,000 and makes it two out of the last three pots.
Hand 64: ElkY Grospellier
Button: Tan (seat 9) – ElkY gets it all-in but there’s no action from any of the other four players.
Hand 63: Ivan Tan
Button: Kim (seat 8) – Tan pops it up to 48,000 from the small blind, and ElkY folds in the big blind.
Hand 62: William Tam eliminated by Sangkyoun Kim in 6th place ($40,480)
Button: Patry (seat 7) – On the first hand after the dinner break, Tam pushes in all his chips except 3000, gets a call from Kim, and eventually gets it all-in with Qd Jh against Kim’s Ad 6d. The board is 5h 5c 9d 9h 3c, sending William Tam to the rail in sixth position.
