Bin Weng opened to 625,000 from the button and Isaac Kempton called from the big blind. The flop came AdQh2c and Kempton checked. Weng continued for 425,000 and Kempton called.

The turn was 9s, Kempton checked, Weng bet 1,050,000 and Kempton check-raised all in for 4,675,000. Weng called and Kempton was at risk.

Weng: AsTc
Kempton: Qs9d

Weng flopped top pair but Kempton was ahead for the double with two pair queens and nines with one card to come. That card was the river Ts to give Weng a bigger two pair and he knocked Kempton out in seventh place.

Bin Weng – 46,050,000 (153 bb)
Isaac Kempton – Eliminated in 7th Place ($183,000)
