Michael Lin, from early position, got all of his chips in preflop against Paul Chai, in middle position. Chai had Lin covered going to the showdown.

Michael Lin: {a-Diamonds}{a-Spades}
Paul Chai: {a-Hearts}{j-Hearts}

Board: {5-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{10-Spades}

Lin had Chai crushed preflop, but the {j-Spades} on the turn gave Chai trip jacks and evoked a stunned reaction from the rest of the table. The bad beat puts Lin out in 25th place.
