Tony Ma Eliminated in 5th Place ($57,521)

• Nivel 27: 20,000-40,000, 0 ante
Tony Mah - 5th Place.

Tony Ma raised under the gun, and Todd Brunson pushed all in from the big blind. Ma called.

Ma: {a-}{a-Spades}{2-Spades}{k-Spades}
Brunson: {q-Hearts}{8-Spades}{5-Spades}{a-Hearts}

The flop came {8-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{5-Hearts}, so Brunson took the lead with two pair. The turn was a {k-Clubs} and the river a {q-Spades}, so Ma didn't improve his hand.

The next hand, Brunson, Ma and Joe Ford saw the flop for the minimum. Brunson led out on a {j-Spades}{10-Hearts}{3-Spades} flop, and both players called. He fired again when the {5-Hearts} turned, and this time, only Ma called. The river came {3-Hearts}, and Brunson bet once more. Ma called, and Brunson showed him {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} for a full house. Ma showed a flush before mucking.

Ma then doubled up twice in the next few hands, but he lost all of it back when Ford took a pot from him with a river bluff, showing {a-}{8-}{6-}{4-} on a {9-Spades}{j-Clubs}{10-Spades}{2-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} board after Ma check-folded the river.

All in for his last big blind, Ma found himself against Brunson and Ford, who were checking down in the blinds. With the board reading {6-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{a-Hearts} after all the cards were out, Ford showed a flush, while Brunson had a live five for low. Ma turned over {a-}{8-}{q-}{q-}, and his roller coaster ride was over.
