There was a little pushing and shoving and a couple of small pots played following the rise of the blinds, but no real changes in the pecking order until an explosion of action saw New Zealand's Honglin Jiang depart in a flurry of cards and chips.

It was an increasingly active Adrian Attenborough who was the initial raiser, making it 50,000 to go from under-the-gun with Shivan Abdine flat calling on the button. Jiang was in the small blind and after checking his hole cards he moved all-in for ~400,000. Attenborough made a speedy fold and Abdine made an equally quick call and the cards were turned over.

Honglin Jiang: {a-Clubs}{k-Clubs}
Shivan Abdine: {j-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

It was left to a good old fashioned race to decide Jiang's fate, and the runout came {6-Clubs}{3-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{9-Diamonds} to send the Kiwi to the rail in seventh for an AU$37,350 payday.
