William Chao Eliminated in 10th Place ($7,514)

Chad_Holloway • Level 25: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante
William Chao

William Chao raised to 135,000 from the cutoff only to have Tom Sundling three-bet all in for around 1.2 million from the button. Both blinds folded and Chao, who barely had Sundling covered, thought long and hard before making the call.

Tom Sundling: {q-Spades}{q-Diamonds}
Willian Chao: {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

Sundling's pocket pair was best and he flopped top set on the {q-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{4-Hearts} flop. The {3-Clubs} turn left Chao drawing dead and he was left with just 90,000 after the {5-Diamonds} was run out on the river.

Chao went bust in the very next hand to bring about the final table.
