GeoffFisk • Level 25: 15,000-30,000, 30,000 ante
Travis Fujisaka

The first big hand of the final table evolved 25 minutes into the day's first level.

Roman Shainiuk opened to 90,000 from early position, and Paul Chai three-bet to 285,000 from the hijack. Travis Fujisakavis Fujisaka then started counting out pink T100,000 chips, appearing like he was ready to make a big move.

Fujisaka did just that, four-betting to 900,000. Shainiuk quickly folded.

Paul Chaii then went all in with the rest of his 3,100,000 total stack, and Fujisaka snap called.

Travis Fujisaka: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}
Paul Chai: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

Board: {8-Hearts}{5-Spades}{7-Spades}{6-Spades}{8-Diamonds}

It was about as good of a situation as Fujisaka could hope for, with the queens well ahead of Paul Chaii's pocket jacks. The runout came out pure for Fujisaka, who scored a big double at the final table.
