Mitch Garshofsky open-shoved from the button for 6,375,000 and Bin Weng called from the big blind.

Weng: AcQc
Garshofsky: 6d5d

Garshofsky was behind but was drawing to two live, suited cards. That changed when Weng paired his ace on the AhJs8h flop. Garshofsky paired his five on the 5s turn but his Championship came to an end after the Ts river.

Bin Weng  –  93,175,000  (186 bb)
