James Chen limped in from the button and big blind Brandon Adams shoved all in. Chen asked for a count and contemplated what to do for a bit when the dealer told him it was 815,000 total.

After about a minute or so, Chen called. The look on Adams' face told bystanders enough, he didn't have much of a hand.

James Chen: {A-Clubs}{3-Hearts}
Brandon Adams: {J-Spades}{4-Spades}

Adams was a small dog in the match up but the {5-Spades}{2-Spades}{10-Diamonds} flop certainly brought him some outs. The {3-Diamonds} on the turn paired Chen but it increased the amount of outs Adams had to double up.

The river, however, was the {9-Diamonds} and that meant the end of it for Adams. He had to settle for second place, worth A$590,520.
