Singapore’s Soo Ghee Lim and Russia’s Timofei Levanov finished 3rd and 4th respectively and were involved in one of the biggest hands of the Final Table. Play was 4-handed when Levanov moved all-in from the button with around 275K and then chip-leader Kim put all of his stack to the middle as well acting from the small blind. Lim, from the big blind, decided to join the party and went all-in worth 330K for a 3-way all-in:
Levanov had offsuit King-Six, Kim held pocket sevens while Lim tabled Ace-King. Kim was ahead preflop and his pocket 7’s held after a board of J? 9? 3? 6? 10? busting out the two other players in the process.
The heads-up round was a different story for Kim however. In the hand that changed the tide of the game, Soo opened 100K from the button but saw Kim move all-in. Soo tanked for a bit before making the call:
Min Soo Kim: 6? 8?
Jeon Seung Soo: A? 10?
Jeon Seung did spike an unnecessary ace on the board and doubled up his chips to over 2.1M. Jeon Seung took advantage of a crippled Kim and ended the heads up with the winning hand J? 9?.
Next up for the APT is the APT Asian Series Jeju from February 27 to March 6 at the Royal Palace Casino, Oriental Hotel in Jeju, Korea.
