  1. Yan Shing 'Anson' Tsang entered the final table of the World Series of Poker Event #68 ($500 Deepstack NLHE Asia) with the chip lead. He never relinquished that lead, holding off the remaining eight players in what started as a field of 2,315 to claim the tournament’s top prize of $150,460. Tsang came into this event with 34 career WSOP cashes including 10 others so far in this year’s GGPoker Online WSOP Series. This was his second WSOP bracelet win after he secured his first in a World Series of Poker Europe PLO 8-Max Event back in October of 2018. On the fourth hand of the final table, the action folded around to Tsang in the small blind. Tsang raised it up to 18.4 million to put Eder Campana, the shortest stack at the final table, to a decision for all of his chips. Campana called off his remaining 2,981,606 with the [poker card="Ac"][poker card="4h"]. Tsang’s [poker card="td"][poker card="9d"] was behind for only a moment as a [poker card="7h"][poker card="8d"][poker card="Jh"] flop gave him the nuts. A [poker card="7s"] on the turn left Campana drawing dead and the [poker card="6c"] on the river eliminated him in ninth place. Five minutes later, Stephen Holford made a raise to 1,000,000 under the gun. The action folded around to Nobuaki Sasaki who moved all in for 5,816,244 with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="qc"]. Holford quickly called with the [poker card="ad"][poker card="kd"]. The [poker card="Jd"][poker card="7d"][poker card="7s"] flop brought in some chop outs for Sasaki but also the nut flush draw for Holford. The [poker card="6d"] on the turn completed the flush for Holford as the meaningless [poker card="5h"] came down on the river to knock Sasaki out in eighth. Two more eliminations came in quick succession roughly five minutes after Sasaki’s. Mohaiman Ashrafee raised from the hijack with [poker card="as"][poker card="kc"] and Marc Carola shoved 7,439,896 over the top from the small blind. Ashrafee called and was able to hold on for the win and eliminate Carola in seventh place won a [poker card="th"][poker card="kd"][poker card="jc"][poker card="7d"][poker card="ah"] runout. Shortly afterward, Tsang raised to 800,000 under the gun with Ah9d. Malcolm Trayner moved all in for his remaining 3,909,418 stack with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8c"]. Tsang took a moment to think before making the call. The [poker card="7d"][poker card="5c"][poker card="3d"] kept Trayner’s pocket eights out in front, but the [poker card="ad"] on the turn left him drawing to just two outs. Trayner was eliminated in sixth place as the [poker card="7c"] gave him no help on the river. Five-handed action went on for nearly a half-hour including the first break of the final table which came shortly after Trayner’s elimination. Wong Soon Heong nursed his short stack for as long as he could, but with under 11 big blinds left (5,381,480), he finally made his move with an all-in from the button with the [poker card="8c"][poker card="7c"]. Holford shoved his 17,730,980 chip stack in with the [poker card="ah"][poker card="kd"] from the small blind which prompted a fold from Amir Dvir in the big blind. Hoeng took the lead on a [poker card="Qd"][poker card="8s"][poker card="4s"] flop, but Holford jumped ahead with a [poker card="kh"] on the turn and held on to eliminate Hoeng in fifth place when the [poker card="6c"] fell on the river. Tsang used his chip lead to dominate the table four-handed for the next 20 minutes or so, building his stack up to 58,121,423 to hold 62.8% of the chips in play. Dvir eventually moved all in for 6,066,281 with [poker card="8d"][poker card="8c"] and Tsang called in the small blind with [poker card="Ah"][poker card="4d"]. An [poker card="Ad"][poker card="4s"][poker card="4h"] flop left Dvir in need of an eight on the turn or river, but the 10h on the turn and 6s on the river added more chips to Tsang’s stack and knocked Dvir out in fourth. Three-handed play only lasted for less than two minutes as Ashrafee opened with an all-in shove from the small blind with [poker card="Ad"][poker card="Qs"] and Holford called off his last 7,197,469 with the [poker card="As"][poker card="7d"] in the big blind. The [poker card="Ac"][poker card="ts"][poker card="3s"] on the flop and the [poker card="9s"] on the turn gave Holford some flush outs, but the [poker card="Kd"] on the river provided no help and eliminated Holford in third place. Heads up play began with Tsang holding roughly a 3-to-1 chip lead over Ashrafee. Ashrafee fought admirably in a back-and-forth heads-up battle that lasted for 40 minutes and saw Ashrafee cut Tsang’s lead down to 51,446,489 to 41,153,511 at one point. But Tsang eventually worked his lead back up and Ashrafee was left with just 13,089,371 chips on the final hand of the tournament. Ashrafee moved all-in with the [poker card="Qs"][poker card="Jd"] and was quickly called by Tsang who held the [poker card="Kh"][poker card="Qd"] in the big blind. The [poker card="Jc"][poker card="Ah"][poker card="td"] fell on the flop to give Tsang the nut straight, which held on for the win as the [poker card="9d"] turn and [poker card="th"] river did nothing to help Ashrafree improve.
