Mikiyo Aoki - 2nd Place

Hand #87: Mikiyo Aoki pushed all in from the button and Haixia Zhang eyed up her opponents stack. After a minute of thought she decided to call and Aoki was facing elimination.

Aoki: {j-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Zhang: {a-Spades}{6-Spades}

Aoki needed to connect with something on the board to catch up, but she didn't see anything that helped on the flop of {5-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{9-Hearts}. The turn card was the {10-Hearts} which added some gutshot outs for Aoki. The river card was the {10-Clubs} which locked up the pot for Zhang, and Aoki was eliminated from the tournament in second place after beginning the day with a massive chip lead. She has earned $94,800 for her great run in this event.
