Thida Lin

Ryan Robinson opened to 200,000 from the cutoff, Sam Razavi called on the button and Thida Lin raised to 880,000 from the big blind. Action folded to Razavi who moved all in and Lin called for her total stack of 2,600,000, players tabled their hands.

Thida Lin: {a-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{4-Spades}
Sam Razavi: {a-Spades}{a-Hearts}{j-Spades}{6-Diamonds}

The flop came down {q-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs} and Lin started yelling "Club! Club!" as she awaited her fate. The turn came down a {7-Diamonds} and both players were both playing their aces but Lin picked up some straight outs.

An unfortunate card fell on the river for Razavi when the dealer turned over a {9-Clubs}, completing the flush for Lin. She let out a cheer of excitement as she now reached the five million chip mark after her double through Razavi.
