Instead of the straight draw, Leow made the better two pair with the river and that sent Chan to the rail in 3rd place. After finishing runner-up to Mikita Badziakouski in the Triton High Roller Series Main Event in Jeju just a few days ago, Chan collected another six-figure payday in Sochi and takes home RUB30,000,000 (approximately $472,500).
