Outer Table Hand #33: Zhen Cai raised to 1,300,000 in middle position and Preben Stokkan shoved all in for 11,550,000 from the button. The blinds folded, and Cai called.
Stokkan was at risk with his suited over cards against Cai's pair, and when the dealer spread the flop, Cai soared into the outright lead.
Stokkan would need a combination of runner-runner cards to stay alive with either running diamonds or a queen and jack.
The turn fell the to keep Stokkan with outs to a jack, but when the completed the board on the river, he would be eliminated in 21st place for a $324,650 payday.
