Event #50: $5,000 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Vanessa Peng Doubles Into The Overnight Chip Lead

• Taso 20: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

On the last hand of the night, and we mean the very last hand of the night, Vanessa Peng doubled up through Isaac Baron to take a huge pot and the chip lead. We missed the preflop action, but Peng and Baron got into a raising war that saw all the chips get into the middle preflop.

Peng: {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Baron: {a-}{k-}

As is often the case, it was a coin flip that would decide a huge pot late in the tournament. Peng stay ahead on the flop, as it came {4-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{9-Clubs}. The turn gave Baron no help, coming the {4-Spades}, and the river secured the win for Peng, coming {3-Diamonds}. After Peng bagged her chips, she had 801,000, and she will come into play tomorrow having everyone else covered. Baron is still healthy, ending the night with 407,000
