Action was picked up on the turn with the board reading {2-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{10-Spades} with three players in the hand. Shawn Rice bet 10,000, James Duke folded and Jimmy Tong called.

The river came the {3-Diamonds}. Tong pushed a stack of chips forward for a big bet of about 90,000. Rice waited a few moments and announced all in which Tong called quickly.

Rice turned over a flopped set with the {2-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} while Tong tabled the rivered wheel with the {a-Clubs}{4-Clubs} much to Rice's dismay as his once large stack was reduced to nearly nothing while Tong shot up the chip leaderboard like a rocket.
