3:20am: Wenxiang Chen eliminated in 2nd place (HK$1,487,000)
Level 33: Blinds - 150,000/300,000 (50,000)

After a tense 3 hour heads up battle Wenxiang Chen has fallen one short of lifting the Red Dragon trophy.

Chen tried to lay a trap for Alner but it backfired when the Englishman flopped a straight.

Chen limped in on the button and after Alner checked, the flop fell 3♣6♣5♠. Alner checked his option before Chen fired for 300,000. Alner popped it up to 1.5 million but Chen wanted to play for more, raising again up to 4 million.

Alner paused momentarily before moving all in with enough to cover Chen's 2.85 million behind. Chen looked defeated but ended up calling it off to see he was drawing very thing to stay alive.

Chen: K♣K♦
Alner: 7♠4♠

Chen had the overpair but needed running cards to avoid elimination. He couldn't do it as the Q♠ turn and 6♥ river signaled the end of the tournament.

3am: Alner reclaims the lead
Level 33: Blinds - 150,000/300,000 (50,000)

With a flurry of small pots Tom Alner has managed to reclaim the chip lead.

While none of the pots have been of considerable size the sheer number of them Alner has taken down recently means he has pushed his stack up to 9.2 million.

Subsequently Wenxiang Chen now has only 7.9 million to play with.

2:40am: Play resumes
Level 33: Blinds - 150,000/300,000 (50,000)

Wenxiang Chen and Tom Alner are back in their seats and playing for the Red Dragon title. Here's how they stack up,

Wenxiang Chen - 9.39 million
Tom Alner - 7.79 million

2:25am: Scheduled break

Play has been halted for a short break. Play will resume in 10 minutes.

2:05am: Alner seizes the lead
Level 32: Blinds - 120,000/240,000 (40,000)

Both Tom Alner and Wenxiang Chen have been jostling for the top spot in this contentious battle but now Alner has emerged as the frontrunner after the hand just gone.

Alner raised to 500,000 on the button and when Chen called they saw a flop of 8♥J♦Q♠. The action went check check and the dealer turned the 7♥.

Chen led at it for 350,000 and Alner called before the 5♥ landed on the river. After another 550,000 from Chen, Alner popped it up to an even 2 million to go.

Chen tossed it in the muck and Alner stacked up 8.8 million.

1:50am: The battle rages on
Level 32: Blinds - 120,000/240,000 (40,000)

Things are neck and neck now and it sees Wenxiang Chen has adopted a new strategy. Despite having over 35 big blinds Chen has begun to move all in over the past few opens from Alner.

It seems to be working with Alner apparently unwilling to gamble for that much, at least with the hands he has been opening with.

Chen still maintains the chip lead with roughly 9.4 million to Alner's 7.7 million.

1:30am: Alner turning it around
Level 32: Blinds - 120,000/240,000 (40,000)

Tom Alner was struggling not long ago but it looks like momentum is shifting here after he picked up a few smaller pots and just took down a sizable one.

On a monochrome 4♦8♦9♦ flop Wenxiang Chen led at it for 250,000 from the small blind and Alner called to take them to the 8♠ turn.

Chen fired again, this time for 550,000, and again Alner called. The 3♣ river prompted a third barrel from Chen for 750,000. Alner counted out a call and slid it into the middle before Chen mucked his hand.

With that Alner closes the gap, now with 7.1 million to 10 million.

1:10am: Chen chops Alner down
Level 31: Blinds - 100,000/200,000 (30,000)

Tom Alner just took a big hit and now has only 3 million in chips to Wenxiang Chen's 14 million.

Alner limped the button and Chen checked his option before flop of 2♥4♥7♦.

Chen checked first to act and Alner barreled for 350,000. After a call from Chen the dealer turned the Q♠. Chen check-called again, this time for 550,000, and the 9♠ rolled off on the end.

This time Chen was the aggressor, reaching into his stack and firing for 850,000. Alner didn't take long to call before seeing the bad news. Chen tabled 9♥7♠ for a rivered two pair and Alner promptly mucked.

12:55am: Alner fighting back
Level 31: Blinds - 100,000/200,000 (30,000)

Tom Alner is edging out of his chip disadvantage after taking a pot of Wenxiang Chen.

Alner raised to 450,000 on the button and Chen defended his big blind to see a flop of T♦5♥K♠. Chen checked and Alner continued for another 450,000.

Chen called again and the A♥ arrived on the turn. After another check from Chen Alner barreled for 875,000 which was good enough to scoop the pot.

12:40am: Heads up begins
Level 31: Blinds - 100,000/200,000 (30,000)

Heads up play is now underway. Tom Alner is going for his second Red Dragon title but will need to overcome almost exactly a 2:1 chip deficit against opponent Wenxiang Chen.

Here are their exact stacks.

Wenxiang Chen - 11,455,000
Tom Alner - 5,725,000

MPC25 Heads up.jpg

12:30am: Jack Salter eliminated in 3rd place (HK$892,000)
Level 31: Blinds - 100,000/200,000 (30,000)

After a marathon four hours of three-handed play we have finally lost Jack Salter to take us to heads up play.

After Wenxiang Chen raised to 450,000 on the button Salter moved all in for 2.435 million from the small blind. Chen got a count before calling it off to see he was in front.

"I'm not in good shape am I?" Salter asked Chen before they tabled their cards.

Salter: A♦6♣
Chen: 6♠6♥

Salter was right and couldn't find an ace or a chop on the 7♠8♣T♥K♠K♣ runout.

With his elimination there will be a short break before heads up play between Chen and Tom Alner.

12:10am: Salter survives after a chop with Chen
Level 31: Blinds - 100,000/200,000 (30,000)

Jack Salter moved all in for 1.82 million on the button and after getting a count in the big blind, Wenxiang Chen called it off to put Salter at risk.

Salter: A♥K♣
Chen: 8♣8♦

It was a fair fight before the flop landed 4♣6♠5♠.

"Three! Three! We'll take a chop" Salter cried and his wish was granted when the 3♥ rolled off on the turn.

"Deuce!" Salter begged and miraculously he called running cards as the 2♠ fell on the river to put a straight on board and see the two players chop it up.

MPC25 Jack Salter deuce!.jpg

11:45pm: Salter lets it go
Level 31: Blinds - 100,000/200,000 (30,000)

Wenxiang Chen limped the small blind before Jack Salter raised it to 675,000 from the big blind. Chen reached deep into his stack and came back over the top for 1.805 million.

"Will you show me this one if I don't continue?" Salter asked after a minute in the tank.

Chen gave no response and Salter let out a deep exhale before spending several more minutes in the tank. Finally he tapped the table with a nod and folded his hand.

Salter now has 2.5 million while Chen extends his lead further to 7.6 million.

11:25pm: Alner scoops a bloated pot
Level 30: Blinds - 80,000/160,000 (20,000)

The board was a double paired A♠A♣4♥4♦7♥ and after Jack Salter checked in the small blind, Tom Alner moved all in for 2.475 million.

"We should've just played small ball, man" Salter said as he considered his options.

"I'm literally sweating it" he continued, taking off his jacket.

"A baby ace for Baby Tom" Salter kept talking as Alner sat in silence.

After a couple minutes in the tank Salter gave it up and dropped back down to 4.3 million.

11:10pm: Salter still standing after lucky catch
Level 30: Blinds - 80,000/160,000 (20,000)

Jack Salter just caught a lucky break to keep his tournament alive after running into the pocket jacks of Tom Alner.

Alner brought it in for a raise to 375,000 on the button and when it folded to Salter in the big blind he pushed all in for 2.795 million. Alner called it off to put him at risk and they tabled their hands.

Alner: J♣J♣
Salter: Q♥8♥

"Hearts, hearts, hearts" Salter chanted but instead it was a queen he found in the window of the 5♥T♣Q♠.

The crowd let out a communal moan at the sight of the three outer as Salter took the lead. The 7♣ turn and 7♥ river presented no danger to Salter and he secured the double up through Alner.

Salter now has 5.6 million in chips while Alner drops to the table short stack on 4.1 million.

11pm: Four-bet jam from Alner
Level 30: Blinds - 80,000/160,000 (20,000)

Tom Alner brought it in for another button raise and after Wenxiang Chen called from the small blind, Jack Salter made it 1.1 million in the big blind.

Alner announced all in with enough to cover Salter's 2.6 million behind and both Chen and Salter quickly folded. With that hand Alner moves up to 6.7 million.

10:50pm: Salter squeeze shoves
Level 30: Blinds - 80,000/160,000 (20,000)

Tom Alner raised to 375,000 on the button and Wenxiang Chen called from the small blind. With the decision on Jack Salter in the big blind he pushed all in for 2,765,000.

"You can fold bro" Salter said to Alner who was in the tank.

Alner did exactly that before Chen followed suit and Salter raked in the pot.

"It would've been a flip" Alner added after Salter tabled 9♥9♦.

10:40pm: Play resumes
Level 30: Blinds - 80,000/160,000 (20,000)

Tom Alner brought it in for a button raise to 375,000 and Jack Salter called from the big blind to see a flop of 7♥Q♥3♣.

The action was checked through and the dealer turned the K♣. Salter checked again but Alner put out a delayed continuation bet of 400,000. Salter made the call and the 5♦ appeared on the river.

After a final check from Salter, Alner made it 900,000 to go. Salter first looked back at his cards, then at Alner, then at the tournament clock.

He took about 30 seconds before tapping the table and throwing his hand away. With that Salter drops to 3.25 million.

Our three remaining players have quite deep stacks now with the average at 47.5 big blinds. As such we aren't seeing any all-ins or huge amounts of action.

In a recent hand Wenxiang Chen did extend his commanding chip lead slightly, winning a small pot from Tom Alner.

Alner limped the small blind for 120,000 before Chen bumped it up to 295,000 from the big blind. Alner called and the flop landed 8♦3♦Q♠. After a check from Alner Chen fired for 315,000 and took down the pot.

After two hours of four-handed play we are now down to three after Benjamin Hamnet lost a flip to Tom Alner.

Hamnet: 4♥4♣
Alner: Q♦J♥

Alner refused to watch, walking off as the flop landed 9♦J♣5♠. He returned when he was told he'd taken the lead and watched the K♦ turn and T♦ river arrive to signal the end for Hamnet.

Hamnet collects HK$650,000 for his efforts here this week.

MPC25 4th place Benjamin Hamnet.jpg

8:20pm: Action slowing dramatically
Level 29: Blinds - 60,000/120,000 (20,000)

Play is noticeably slower since we got to four-handed play.

Not only are we seeing less aggressive action but players are also taking longer with each decision, often going into the tank despite the relatively small bet sizes.

Nothing much has changed since the last chip count update.

8:05pm: Salter applies pressure
Level 28: Blinds - 50,000/100,000 (10,000)

Jack Salter just won another pot, this time taking from Benjamin Hamnet.

Salter opened to 215,000 from the cutoff before Hamnet made it 535,000 to go on the button. Salter took his time before announcing he was all in with enough to cover Hamnet.

Hamnet flashed the A♣ and threw his hand into the muck and once again Salter reassured a fellow tablemate, telling Hamnet it was a good fold and revealing the A♣.

7:15pm: Cold four-bet from Salter
Level 28: Blinds - 50,000/100,000 (10,000)

Jack Salter just scooped another pot after a preflop four-bet in this four-handed game.

Benjamin Hamnet opened the action from under the gun with a raise to 235,000 before Tom Alner played back at him from the button for 600,000.

Salter wanted to play for more, however, putting in the cold four-bet to 1.25 million from the big blind. Hamnet let it go before the decision was back to Alner.

Alner sat in the tank studying Salter for about two minutes before deciding to fold.

"Pocket rocket" Salter claimed as he flashed the cards for the railbirds to see.

Salter moved up to 4.3 million while Alner dipped to 3 million.

7pm: Salter ships on Alner
Level 28: Blinds - 50,000/100,000 (10,000)

Jack Salter limped on the button before Tom Alner decided to bump it up to 300,000 from the big blind. Salter then announced a huge raise to 3 million for most of his chips.

From Alner's expression it was clear he had a big decision on his hands.

"What do you have? Sevens?" Salter asked him.

"Exactly" Alner replied.

"Wow, I'm the best" Salter responded with a laugh.

Alner continued to consider his options before eventually tossing the hand away.

"Good fold" Salter reassured him, tabling the superior 8♣8♦.

6:40pm: Daniel Lee eliminated in 5th place (HK$440,000)
Level 27: Blinds - 40,000/80,000 (10,000)

Daniel Lee is our 5th place finisher after a bad beat from Benjamin Hamnet.

Hamnet opened to 165,000 under the gun and when the action got to Lee in the small blind he moved all in for around 850,000. After pausing momentarily Hamnet opted to call and the cards went on their backs.

Lee: 7♣7♦
Hamnet: 6♠6♣

Lee had the best of it until the turn when the board came down 9♠Q♥T♠6♥. Needing a seven for a higher set or an eight for a straight Lee couldn't catch one with the J♣ river offering no help.

He would have to be content with HK$440,000.

MPC25 5th place Daniel Lee.jpg

6:25pm: Alner on the up and up
Level 27: Blinds - 40,000/80,000 (10,000)

Tom Alner continues to climb after taking some chips from table frontrunner Wenxiang Chen.

Chen made an under the gun raise to 175,000 and picked up Jack Salter and Alner who called from the button and big blind respectively.

On the T♥8♥2♥ flop it was checked to Chen and he continued for 200,000. Salter got out of the way but Alner stuck around to see the J♦ turn card. The action went check check and the 4♠ arrived on the end.

Alner led at it for 550,000 and put Chen to a decision. Chen shook his head while loading up a call and eventually decided to commit to it. Alner tabled J♥T♣ for a turned two pair and Chen nodded before mucking.

"I had a bad feeling bud I had a very strong hand" said Chen as Alner raked the pot and moved up to 3.9 million.

6:05pm: The rich get richer
Level 27: Blinds - 40,000/80,000 (10,000)

Chen opened to 180,000 on the button and Salter called from the big blind. The flop fell 9♦5♦7♦ and Salter led at it for 185,000. Chen called and the dealer turned the K♠. Salter fired again, this time for 220,000, and Chen called again before the J♣ river.

Salter then reached deep and bombed it for 1,065,000, sending Chen into the tank. While Chen considered his options for a couple of minutes Salter smiled at Team PokerStars Pro Yaxi Zhu who stood behind him on the rail.

Chen counted out a call and slid it into the middle with just T♠T♥ which was good against Salter's 7♥6♣.

"Nice call" Salter conceded after tapping the table. He fell to under 3.5 million while Chen moved up to over 7.2 million in chips.

Level 26: Blinds - 30,000/60,000 (5,000)

Liang Song has left us now after calling it off with a straight draw against Jack Salter.

Salter opened to 135,000 on the button and Song defended his big blind to see a flop of 2♠6♥8♣. The action went check check and on the 4♣ turn Song checked again. This time Salter fired for another 135,000 but Song decided to check-raise for 300,000.

Salter raised to an even 1 million with enough to cover Song who called it off to put himself at risk.

Song: 9♦7♥
Salter: 8♥6♦

Salter had flopped two pair against Song's open ended straight draw and held as the A♥ river bricked off. With that Song departs in 6th place.

5pm: Alner collecting chips
Level 26: Blinds - 30,000/60,000 (5,000)

Tom Alner is on the rise after taking down a decent pot in a recent hand.

After Wenxiang Chen raised to 130,000 from under the gun, Benjamin Hamnet called on the button but Alner squeezed to 425,000 from the big blind. He was called in two spots and the flop landed 2♣5♣T♠.

Alner continued the aggression with a bet of 400,000 and that was good enough to get the job done as Chen and Hamnet both folded. With that pot Alner climbs to 3.2 million in chips.

4:45pm: Jingxuan Zhu eliminated in 7th place (HK$274,000)
Level 26: Blinds - 30,000/60,000 (5,000)

We're down to six players now after JingXuan Zhu has fallen at the hands of chip leader Wenxiang Chen.

When it folded around to Zhu he shoved all in from the cutoff for 960,000 before being called by Chen in the small blind. Zhu held 9♠9♦ but was behind Chen's T♣T♦.

Zhu couldn't improve when the cards fell 3♠8♥K♣8♣3♣ and he leaves us in 7th place. Meanwhile Chen builds to 5.3 million in chips.

Xiao Bo Zhou was the next to leave us here after he fell into the trap of Jack Salter.

Zhou raised from under the gun to 135,000 and after Salter smooth-called from the hijack seat, Tom Alner also came along from the big blind.

The flop landed 9♣3♠Q♠ and after a check from Alner, Zhou continued for 215,000. With the action back to Salter he raised to 620,000. Alner quickly folded but Zhou gave it some thought before calling off for his tournament life.

Zhou: A♦Q♣
Salter: K♥K♣

Zhou had run into Salter's overpair and needed to find an ace or queen to keep his Red Dragon hopes alive. The 9♥ turn and 8♥ river proved no help and Zhou was eliminated in 8th place.

MPC25 8th place Xiao Bo Zhou.jpg

4:15pm: Hamnet helps his stack
Level 26: Blinds - 30,000/60,000 (5,000)

The action has slowed again since Qiu's departure but we did just see another three-bet on the final table. Tom Alner opened to 130,000 from under the gun before the action folded around to Benjamin Hamnet in the small blind.

Hamnet reached into his stack and made it 330,000, a move that send Alner into the tank. Alner studied his opponent as he deliberated for around two minutes but in the end he decided to relinquish his hand.

3:55pm: Shuaiyang Qiu eliminated in 9th place (HK$202,000)
Level 25: Blinds - 20,000/40,000 (5,000)

In a shock finish our first final table casualty is none other than start-of-day chip leader Shuaiyang Qiu. He lost a big pot recently to Wenxiang Chen before the latter finished him off in the cooler that just transpired.

Chen was in the cutoff and had a raising war with Qiu on the button. Ultimatley Qiu five-bet jammed and Chen snapped it off with the superior hand.

Qiu: K♠K♣
Chen: A♠A♥

Qiu was chasing a king to avoid being eliminated first today but it wouldn't come as the board ran out Q♠8♥Q♥T♣5♣. The dealer cut down both the stacks and Qiu left his seat and shook his tablemate's hands when he realized Chen had him covered.

Level 25: Blinds - 20,000/40,000 (5,000)

It's been slow going here so far with players either still warming up to the final table or simply not picking up big hands. We did, however, just witness a three-bet from Jack Salter.

Daniel Lee opened the betting to 85,000 from early position before Salter next-to-act put in a reraise to 235,000. The action folded back around to Lee and after eyeing Salter's stack he opted to give it up.
