James Romero

Bin Weng limped on the button, James Romero raised to 400,000 from the big blind and Weng called.

They checked to the river of an 8sAd3d6cAc board where Romero bet effectively 1,775,000, sending Weng into the tank for about three minutes before he called all in.

A recap of the event will be posted later tonight.
