Nathan Chong moved all in from the button for 14,700,000 and Ya Yun Liu moved all in at risk for just under 9,000,000 from the small blind. Kevin MacDonald thought about it for a minute, deciding whether to go for the double knockout but picked a fold.
Liu was ahead for the double up but needed to fade Chong’s two live cards. That bad news for our former chipleader came on the flop when Chong paired his jack. The turn and river finished the board and Liu was eliminated in second place.
Nicholas Chong – 23,700,000 (59 bb)
Ya Yun Liu – Eliminated in 3rd Place ($129,300)
