Jason Koon opened to 28,000 and with just 12,000 chips to his name, Chi Zhang called all in. Cary Katz raised to 100,000 and Koon folded.

Zhang held for a full double with aces against the queens of Katz.

Then, Katz raised to 28,000 and Zhang moved all in from the button. Katz called with {7-Hearts}{8-Hearts} against the {a-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} of Zhang.

The flop {3-Spades}{6-Hearts}{10-Spades} gave Katz a gutshot and the {3-Hearts} turn gave him a flush draw as well. "Too many outs," said Katz, and that proved to be the case on the {a-Clubs} river and Zhang doubled.

On the very next hand it folded to Zhang in the small blind who moved all in and Igor Kurganov checked his cards before calling.

Chi Zhang: {a-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}
Igor Kurganov: {q-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}

There was to be no third double on the {q-Hearts}{k-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} board as Zhang was eliminated.
