James Chen pushed all in for his seven big blind stack of 1,360,000 in middle position. Brandon Adams asked for a count on the button and then made the call to put Chen at risk.

Brandon Adams: {j-Spades}{j-Clubs}
James Chen: {k-Hearts}{4-Hearts}

Chen needed some help in order to stay alive but the {10-Clubs}{5-Spades}{4-Spades} flop was not looking promising. The {3-Clubs} on the turn changed nothing and the {a-Hearts} on the river sealed the deal as Chen busted out in ninth place.

Nitsche Cracks Aces to Double Up

• Level 22: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante

Dominik Nitsche opened to 600,000 in the hijack and James Chen flat-called on the button. The two players went heads-up to a flop of {q-Clubs}{j-Spades}{7-Spades} and Nitsche started with a check. Chen fired out a bet of 800,000 and Nitsche called.

The turn was the {10-Diamonds} and both players checked to the {6-Clubs} on the river. Nitsche checked again and Chen slid out a bet of 2,000,000. Nitsche check-raised all in for 2,720,000 and Chen quickly called. Nitsche showed {q-Spades}{q-Hearts} which took down the pot against Chen's {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}.
