Min Zhang
Min Zhang won Event 26 last night, earning $23,450.

Event 1 champion Johnny Bromberg moved all in under the gun for 182,000, and Event 26 champion Min Zhang called all in from the button for 163,000 with AdAc.

Bromberg turned over AsJc, and Zhang needed her aces to hold to stay alive.

The board came AhKd3sJd10d, and Zhang won the pot with a flopped set of aces to double up in chips, knocking Bromberg down to less than two big blinds.

Min Zhang  –  356,000  (30 bb)
