Levi Stevens shoved again, but this time Lu Zhang called.

Zhang: {K-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}
Stevens: {K-Spades}{3-Hearts}

Stevens was dominated and would need serious help to survive, but found none from the {Q-Spades}{10-Spades}{4-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{9-Spades} board.

As Stevens hit the rail third, Zhang and Sheraz Nasir enter heads-up play with very similar stack sizes.

Gary Lucci

Gary Lucci opened for 125,000 and Lu Zhang piled it in from the big blind.

Lucci called all in for his tournament life holding {J-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}. Zhang had two overs in the form of {A-Spades}{Q-Spades} and took the lead in the classic race when the {Q-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{2-Clubs} flop fell.

Lucci needed help to survive, but found none on the {5-Clubs} turn or {8-Diamonds} river.

Sheraz Nasir is now firmly in the lead once again.

Lu Zhang made it 125,000 and Nasir three-bet, making it 325,000. Zhang called and they went heads-up to a {9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{4-Diamonds} flop.

Nasir bets 375,000 and Zhang called. The turn came the {5-Diamonds} and this time Nasir check-called a 475,000 chip bet from Zhang.

The river was the {9-Spades} and both players checked with Nasir showing {6-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}. Zhang mucked.

Lu Zhang made it 125,000 and Levi Stevens defended his big blind.

After Stevens checked the {A-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{5-Hearts} flop, Zhang continued for 85,000, but Stevens was waiting in the wings with a check-raise and moved in for 440,000 total.

Zhang called with {K-Spades}{10-Spades} and was behind Stevens' {9-Spades}{5-Spades}.

He made a boat on the {2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds} run out to survive.

Lucci Doubles; Zhang Fights Back

MartyDerby • Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Lu Zhang pushed Levi Stevens off a sizable pot with a big river bet before carefully tangling with Sheraz Nazir in another hand showing down pocket kings to beat his nines.

Then she picked off a Gary Lucci bluff with two pair and found herself back over four million in chips.

A hand later, Lucci picked up {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades} and got it in against Nasir on {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}, doubling through on a {4-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{Q-Spades}{Q-Hearts} run out.

Still four-handed, Zhang is back on top again.
