Anton Wigg raised from the button to 600,000 with Ac10h, and Alex Yen called from the big blind with Ah4d.

The flop came Kc4c4h, Yen checked, Wigg bet 350,000, and Yen called.

The turn card was the Ad, Yen checked, Wigg bet 1,200,000, and Yen called.

The river card was the 3h, Yen checked, Wigg bet 2,100,000, and Yen thought for a while before he check-raised to 5,500,000. Wigg used two of his Time Chips to tank for more than a minute before he called with his two pair, aces and fours.

But Yen turned over his full house, fours full of aces, to win the pot and increase his chip lead to more than twice as much as either of his opponents.

Alex Yen  –  51,425,000  (171 bb)
Anton Wigg  –  24,000,000  (80 bb)
