Both players agreed to continue playing and to skip the break.

Kui Song Wu min-raised from the button and James Chen called, checking the {4-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{4-Clubs} flop over to Wu, who fired out a continuation bet. Chen check-raised all-in, Wu made a quick call and both players turned over their hands.

James Chen: {Q-Clubs}{6-Hearts}
Kui Song Wu: {A-Clubs}{K-Spades}

It was two pair on the flop for Chen, and his rail crowded around screaming "Hold!". The turn was the {10-Diamonds} which didn't change the situation.

The river however, was the {K-Hearts} which gave Wu the higher two pair to eliminate Chen as the runner-up. They shook hands and Chen made his way to the payout desk to collect his cash of HK$1,017,000.

A full recap of today's action is to follow.
