Guo Liang Chen raises from middle position to 260,000, and Thomas Paul (pictured) uses one of his Time Chips to tank for a while before he calls from the big blind.

The flop comes Heart 7Club 4Club 2, Paul checks, Chen moves all in, and Paul snap-calls with Diamond QClub 7 for a pair of sevens.

Chen turns over Club ASpade K for ace high, and Paul needs his hand to hold to stay alive.

The turn card is the Spade J, and Chen can only catch an ace or a king to win this pot.

The river card is — the Club K!

Chen wins the pot with a pair of kings to eliminate Thomas Paul in sixth place.
