Big Slick Doesn't do the Trick for Yuan

Ye Yuan

Christopher "Pay_Son" Staats raised from the hijack and then called the 27,984 three-bet jam Ye "Yuan365" Yuan made from the cutoff.

Ye "Yuan365" Yuan: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}
Christopher "Pay_Son" Staats: {k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}

Yuan had Staats dominated until a jack appeared in the window on the {3-Spades}{2-Clubs}{j-Spades} flop.

The {2-Diamonds} turn paired the board leaving Yuan needing an ace on the river but he {k-Hearts} appeared ending his tournament just a few spots shy of the money.
