Wei Zhao Eliminated in 9th Place ($109,574)

Wei Zhao

Blinds 25,000/50,000

Action fell on Pedro Garagnani who opened to 100,000 from middle position and Niklas Astedt called on the button. Wei Zhao shoved 127,885 from the big blind and both players called to see the {a-Clubs}{5-Spades}{4-Diamonds} flop.

Both players checked through to showdown with a {9-Hearts}{q-Spades} runout completing the board. Garagnani tabled {k-Spades}{10-Clubs} for king-high and Zhao then showed {k-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}, giving him a pair of nines.

The start of the day chipleader flipped over his {j-Hearts}{j-Diamonds} for the best hand with his pair of jacks to pull in the pot as Zhao was sent packing in ninth place.
