Li Wu

Li Wu went from an average stack to a short stack a few orbits back when he open-shoved over a million chips and Shane Fuller called it off. Wu held {7-Spades}{7-Clubs} against Fuller's {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds} and the latter took down the biggest pot of the day when the board ran out {j-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{10-Spades}.

Wu was left with just 375,000 chips following that hand, but managed to maintain both his chip stack and his composure before the penultimate hand arrived.

Fuller opened the pot for 75,000 and Wu shoved for 350,000 from the small blind. Fuller called and the hands were revealed.

Wu - {10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Fuller - {9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Both players had live cards, though Wu had the diamonds covered. The flop came {k-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}, keeping Wu's cards live as kickers to avoid chop outs. The {4-Spades} on the turn changed nothing, but the river came the {9-Clubs}, pairing Fuller and sending Wu to the exit.

Wu earned $9,207 for his 4th-place finish and a seat in the Poker After Dark freeroll.
