There was a great deal of pushing and shoving and quite a few three-bet preflop pots that didn't see any flops dealt before a sudden burst of action saw Hong Kong's Dicky Tsang exit the tournament area.
Tsang was one of the shorter stacks and moved all-in from under-the-gun for 390,000 and action folded around to big blind Yu You Ci Tsai, who tanked for a good few minutes before stating "ok, let's gamble," and slapped down the calling chips.
Yu You Ci Tsai:
Tsai's gamble saw him dominate Tsang's hand, and the Hong Kong player totally missed the runout, departing in 10th place for TWD 119,500 ($3,810) to set up the official nine-handed final table.
The clock has been paused with 48:12 remaining on level 24 with play resuming on Tuesday, August 20 at 1:00 p.m. local time (GMT+8), and all that action concludes the Day 3 play. Full end of day chip counts and wrap to follow.
