While Mike Watson was being eliminated at one table, James Chen was involved in a massive pot against Adrian Mateos. With over 1,300,000 already in the pot of a {3-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{9-Spades}{6-Clubs} board, Chen checked and Mateos moved all-in.

Chen went into the tank and eventually, Mateos called the clock. With just five seconds left on the clock, Chen made the call.

Mateos tabled {q-Hearts}{9-Hearts} and Chen, realizing his Main Event run came to an end, slowly mucked his cards. Chen took home HK $2,343,000 (US $300,278) finishing in ninth place.
