Yuan Li was playing a fantastic tournament, and all was going according to plan on the final table until just over an hour into 3-way play. She spent long passages of time tonight as the chip leader, and then alternating as leader with Danny… and then into 3rd place after Maxime’s flopped set of Tens beat her Kings.
Just a few hands later, Maxime opened in the small blind with a limp, Yuan shoved and Maxime made the call he was hoping to make.
Maxime stayed ahead on the flop and the turn and river were meaningless… and Yuan was sent to the Tournament Desk to pick up her payout ticket.
3rd place: Yuan Li, $137,970
