Home / Uncategorized / APPT Macau: Wang first to fall at ACOP Main Event final table

“Double me up!”

So said Henry Wang of Chinese Taipei just now after announcing his all-in opening raise.

Level 22 had just begun (7,000/14,000/2,000), and Wang had pushed his last 130,500 forward from the cutoff seat. He’d begun the day in the middle of the pack, but after suffering through a couple of shorter stacks doubling through him he had to make a move.

Andrew Hinrichsen of Australia, sitting to Wang’s left, checked his cards, paused just a beat, and took the invitation to play, setting forward a column of yellow chips to call. The blinds folded, and the pair tabled their hands.

“I have live cards!” said Wang with a smile as he stood, a few of his supporters on the rail offering words of encouragement as he did. Indeed, his Q4 represented two live cards against Hinrichsen’s A10.

Wang leaned forward to shake the Aussie’s hand prior to the community cards’ arrival.

The flop came A96, and Wang’s hand wasn’t so live anymore. Then came the A turn and it was dead altogether.


Henry Wang, 9th place

A still smiling Wang bid the others good luck before departing.

With that one Hinrichsen chips up into third position with eight players left, behind leader Xing Zhou (China) and second-place Tsugunari Toma (Japan).
