Carlos Dorca limped under the gun for 60,000, and Tsz Shing raised UTG+1 to 230,000. Ronnie Bardah called from the hijack, James Anderson called from the button, and Dorca called.

All four players checked to the turn on a board of Ks6d6cJd, and Dorca bet 350,000. Shing and Bardah both folded, and Anderson called.

The river card was the Qh, Dorca checked, and Anderson used one of his Time Chips to tank for a while before he moved all in for 2,915,000.

Dorca used two of his Time Chips to tank for more than a minute before he called.

Anderson showed Jh9h for two pair, jacks and sixes, but his body language showed he clearly knew it wasn’t the winning hand; he was already leaving. Dorca excitedly turned over KdJs for a higher two pair, kings and jacks, to eliminate Anderson in 13th place — and take the lead with more than 10 million in chips.

Carlos Dorca  –  10,300,000  (172 bb)
