Jiang Bridges the Gap With Huge Pot

Brentharrington • Level 31: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante
Chengce Jiang

Chengce Jiang was well behind Ben Zamani in heads up play until he turned a straight and got his remaining chips in against Zamani's flush draw.

The swing started one hand earlier when Jiang called 400,000 on the river with fourth pair to win about 800,000 from Zamani on that pot.

On the next hand, Jiang limped the small blind, as Zamani had done the hand before and Zamani checked behind.

The flop came {6-Hearts}{4-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and Zamani checked. Jiang bet 225,000 and Zamani raised to 625,000. Jiang called.

The turn was the {8-Clubs} and Zamani checked again. Jiang bet 800,000 and Zamani went all in. Jiang didn't look too pleased but called relatively quickly and showed a straight holding {7-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}. Zamani had a chance to end the tournament if he could catch a club, since he was holding {j-Clubs}{2-}.

The river was the {a-Diamonds} and earned Jiang the double up, bringing him within 2 million chips of Zamani.
