83 runners (including Isaac Haxton, Phil Ivey and other big names) created a prize pool of HK$20,750,000 for the HK$250,000 buy-in ACOP High Roller event this weekend. It took almost 17 hours of play over 2 days to play down to a winner: Germany's Fabian Quoss who defeated Yu Liang heads-up to lay hands on the HK$5,271,000 first-place prize (US $670,000).
This is how the final hand was played out: The blinds were 300k/600k when Yu shoved his last 3 million chips with KQ. Quoss called with A8 and the flop came out 623. The K on the turn gave Yu a pair of kings, but he still needed to dodge 3 aces and all hearts on the river. The dealer burned a card, then dealt the river... Q - which gave Quoss a flush queen high and the title!
