Michael Zhang Eliminated in 9th Place ($110,568)

Michael Zhang

Blinds 25,000-50,000

Michael Zhang raised to 110,000 and picked up one caller in Mikita Badziakouski in the hijack. On the {k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{8-Clubs} flop, Zhang elected to check and Badziakouski then bet 118,661, an amount Zhang matched. On the {2-Clubs} turn, Zhang check-called for another 439,742.

He then also checked the {j-Diamonds} river and Badziakouski bet 1,465,806, which had his opponent covered. That sent Zhang deep into the tank for more than five minutes.

Eventually, Zhang called it off with the {k-Hearts}{q-Spades} and had to settle for 9th place, as Badziakouski had the best of it with {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} for eights full of jacks.
