Action came in hot on the turn as it read {k-Spades}{10-Clubs}{j-Spades}{8-Diamonds}. From the small blind Philip Shing bet 125,000 into an already large pot. Jacob Ferro spiked forward a full stack of big chips and announced all in, Shing snap-called.

Ferro had the nuts with the {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds} beating the {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds} of Shing who needed the board to pair. And it did as the dealer procured the {8-Spades} on the river to dramatically give Shing the massive pot and deny Ferro what would've been a crushing chip lead well over a million.

"We chose violence" said Shing as the huge pot was pushed toward him.
