Chau Giang - 14th Place
Chau Giang - 14th Place

Chau Giang — a living legend in the game of poker — has just hit the rail in 14th place. He was eliminated by Matt Grapenthien.

Giang was all in on fifth street with the ({10-Diamonds}{7-Hearts}) / {10-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{A-Hearts} for a split pair of tens. Grapenthien held the ({5-Hearts}{5-Clubs}) / {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}{J-Hearts} for a buried pair of fives.

On sixth street, Giang pulled the {Q-Clubs} and Grapenthien the {A-Diamonds}. That ace gave Grapenthien the lead with two pair of aces and fives.

On the end, Giang picked up the {J-Spades} and Grapenthien the {6-Diamonds}. Having come from behind to take the lead on sixth, Grapenthien stayed there and busted Giang with aces up.
