Yaxi Zhu Eliminated in 14th Place (AU$58,560)

Webjoker • Level 16: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante
Yaxi Zhu

Yaxi Zhu shoved all in for about 130,000 from the hijack seat, and Steve O'Dwyer, right next to her, instantly folded. Michael Egan re-shoved on the button for about 435,000, and both blinds instantly released.

Yaxi Zhu: {K-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}
Michael Egan: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}

Zhu was dominated, but she must have had some hopes of drawing out after the {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{J-Clubs} flop. The {7-Clubs} on the turn wasn't a good card however, and Egan even made his flush with the {5-Clubs} on the river.

Yaxi Zhu was eliminated in 14th place, giving her a payout of AU$58,560.
