James Chen Eliminated in 9th Place (HK $2,343,000)
Level 17 : 20,000-40,000, 5,000 ante
While Mike Watson was being eliminated at one table, James Chen was involved in a massive pot against Adrian Mateos. With over 1,300,000 already in the pot of a board, Chen checked and Mateos moved all-in.
Chen went into the tank and eventually, Mateos called the clock. With just five seconds left on the clock, Chen made the call.
Mateos tabled and Chen, realizing his Main Event run came to an end, slowly mucked his cards. Chen took home HK $2,343,000 (US $300,278) finishing in ninth place.
