Honglin Jiang celebrates his double up through his sister

Sosia Jiang and brother Honglin Jiang are both still in the field and are seated at the same table, with the former kind enough to ship some chips the way of the latter.

It was Honglin the man to pull the trigger first, moving all-in from early position for 54,000 in total. After asking for a count, Sosia made the call from the big blind to put her sibling at risk.

Sosia Jiang: {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
Honglin Jiang: {k-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}

"I can't fold, I've got Chinese aces," said Sosia as the cards were revealed.

"Well, at least I'm drawing live and in decent shape," replied Honglin.

The {9-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{6-Spades} flop saw Sosia maintain the lead in the hand, with the {a-Clubs} giving Honglin a few more outs. The {q-Hearts} river was just the card Honglin was looking for, and he celebrated with a fist pump and cry of 'Yes!', just as Sosia groaned 'Noooooo!'

That timely catch saw Honglin climb to 120,500 while Sosia still a very playable stack, dropping to 375,000 after the hand.
