There's no stopping Xing Zhou today! He just knocked out Tom Alner and added some more chips to his impressive chip lead. Alner just moved all in from the button for 278,000 and Zhou called from the big blind after about a minute.

Xing Zhou: {A-Clubs}{5-Clubs}
Tom Alner: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}

The flop brought out {6-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Hearts} and the crowd erupted. Zhou had picked up a straight draw and everyone was rooting for the chip leader to win. The turn brought the {Q-Diamonds} and Alner's friends kept rooting for the board to pair. Unfortunately the river brought the {8-Hearts} and Zhou completed his straight.

Alner was crushed while some of the remaining players cheered loudly as they just moved up a spot on payouts. Just seven remain with Zhou firmly in control of this final table.
