It all started with a cutoff raise to 12,500 by Chi Zhang and Thomas Fairrie called on the button. Rory Young shoved for 103,500 in the small blind and Quan Zhou in the big blind called. Zhang then announced all-in and Pairrie tank-folded. Zhou tanked for a good two minutes, asked for a count and Zhang's jam was for a total of 348,500.
Zhou gave it some more consideration and folded.
"Flop me a gutshot, that's all I want," Young asked in table chat but the flop brought no reason for hope at all. It was all over on the turn and the river became a formality.
A few moments later, Zong-Chi He was spotted on the way out from one table over and that reduced the field further after an intense restart after dinner.
