Young Sik Eum was at the top of the counts for most of the day, but he took a big downturn in the last hour, and was just eliminated. Action started with Alexey Laptev raising to 300,000. For the second hand in a row, Young Sik Eum would three bet shove over the top, but this time, Laptev called with [As][Ac]. He was well ahead of the Queen-Jack of Sik Eum, but the flop of [Qh][9h][8s] suddenly gave him new life. However, the [6c] came on the turn, and the [9d] completed the board.
This hand gives Laptev the lead now, as he has over 10 million.
