Dan O'Brien raises to 8,000 from middle position and Tuan Phan calls on the button. The flop comes J72 and O'brien checks. Phan bets 16,000 and O'Brien check-raises all-in for an additional 77,000.
Phan thinks a bit before calling with J9 for top pair. O'Brien turns over A9 for the nut flush draw.
The Q on the turn changes nothing and the 7 on the river officially gives Phan the pot and sends O'Brien to the rail.
This KO comes just a short while after Phan eliminated Shaun Deeb. He now appears to be overall chipleader with 920,000 chips, overtaking Jason Somerville for the top spot. Their roles could reverse shortly though, as both players are seated at the same table.
Tuan Phan - 920,000 (230 BBs)
Dan O'Brien - eliminated
