Dominik Nitsche limped the button with the {a-Diamonds}{j-Hearts} and James Chen in the small blind raised it up to 2,500,000 with the {10-Spades}{7-Spades}, which Nitsche called. The flop brought {k-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{2-Diamonds} and Chen made it 1,700,000 to go, Nitsche double-checked his cards and made the call.

Chen also bet the {a-Spades} turn for 4,000,000 and Nitsche called with his top pair. The {3-Diamonds} on the river brought no betting action as Nitsche checked behind and took over the lead.

Chen had been the chip leader for a while, however, losing this pot cost him the lead and Nitsche assumed control over the table.
