Philip Shing raised from the button to 65,000, Leon Sturm reraised from the small blind to 140,000, and Shing moved all in.

Sturm called all in for about 200,000 with 9s9h, but he needed to improve to stay alive against Shing’s AsAh.

The board came KdJh7dQc7h, and the pocket aces held up for Shing to win the pot and eliminate Sturm in sixth place.
