The first one eliminated was Paul Chauderson, who ran into KK with his 44, and the board 59108A didn’t help him; he won $7,107 for his tenth-place finish.

James Thoman was eliminated when his 99 didn’t hold against Sun’s AK on J4Q107. Thoman finished in ninth place for $8,921.

Hung went all-in with KQ and got called by Zhao with A4 and didn’t manage to hit king or queen and was eliminated in fourth place for $35,910.

A crazy hand happened with three players left when Christina opened to 700,000 with AK, Solis 3-betted to 1,700,000 with KK, and Zhao went all-in for 17,000,000 with QQ. Christina was in a hard spot and said, “This is going to be the best fold of my F***king life,” and folded her hand.

Solis snap-called and was in great shape against Zhao’s queens, but the flop came 66Q, leaving Solis with just one out since Christina folded a king. The turn was 2, and the river was 6, and Zhao extended his chip lead sitting on 28 million chips.


Later on, Christina opened to 850,000 with A2, and Zhao called with QJ. The pot was 2,000,000. The flop came 38A, and Christina bet 400,000; Zhao called. The turn comes Q, Zhao checked, Christina continued with the 700,000 bets, and Zhao called again. The river came 9, Zhao went all-in and put Christina in a tough spot with her top pair weak kicker. After some thinking, Christina made a great call and doubled up to 14,000,000, but still behind Zhao, who was on 22,000,000.

The last hand happened when Zhao went all-in for 12,000,000 with A7, and Christina called with A8. Christina was 66 percent favorite, and the board came 35A8J, turn giving her the win.
