The action hand that catapulted Yoon to the top was completing the open-ended on the river to defeat a player’s over pair. The shoves were seen at the flop. Yoon earned more than 400K chips in the process and is now the overall Day 2 chip leader with two entry days remaining.
In second rank by a wide 27 BB less was Se Kyung Oh with 559,000 chips (47 BB). Oh ended the run of an extremely short stacked player on the bubble to end Day 1B.
