Nicky Tao Jin

On a flop of {6-Hearts}{K-Hearts}{8-Spades}, Wang Ping Yuan checked over to Nicky Tao Jin who bet out an unknown amount. Yuan raised an unknown amount and Jin replied by moving all in for a bet totaling roughly about 130,000 total. Yuan went into the tank before finally opting to call.

Yuan: {8-Hearts}{5-Hearts}
Jin: {6-Clubs}{6-Spades}

Jin was out in the lead with his set of sixes but Yuan was drawing live to hearts. The turn was the {q-Spades} and Yuan needed to catch a heart on the river to send Jin packing. The river was the {Q-Diamonds} filling up Jin and securing him a huge double up. He's now one of the big stacks in the room with about 290,000 in chips. Yuan, on the other hand, has been crippled to 37,000.
