Joseph Cheong moved all in under the gun for 325,000, and Ren Lin asked for a count before he called from the cutoff.

Cheong showed one card — an ace — and asked Lin if he needed to get lucky. Lin showed confidence and said, “You need to get lucky.

Then Lin showed Ah9s, and Cheong turned over Ac10d.

The board came 9h5d5cJc2s, and Lin paired his nine on the flop to win the pot and eliminate Cheong in sixth place.
