Alexander Yen moved all in from the small blind for 1,645,000, and Min Zhang tossed in all but one of her Time Chips right away to give herself well over three minutes to think.

As her time was nearing zero, Zhang called all in for 1,045,000 with Ah7h.

Yen turned over 9h9d, and Zhang needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Js10c3cQd5h, and the pocket nines held up for Yen to win the pot and eliminate Zhang in 41st place.

Alexander Yen  –  2,740,000  (55 bb)
