Wen Zhang has been at or near the top of the chip counts all day and only further solidified his place at the top with a double knockout to move over 1,500,000
In a multi-way pot, Schuyler Twaddle led out for 55,000 on a flop of Q♦J♦8♠. From the big blind, Christopher Ely moved all-in for about 150,000 and Prateek Chandra followed him in for roughly the same amount from the cutoff. Zhang flatted on the button to put both at risk with Twaddle letting his hand go.
Zhang couldn’t have asked for a better flop as he turned over 10♦9♦ for a flopped straight with a straight flush redraw. Ely was drawing slim with 8♦2♦ while Chandra was live to hit a better straight with K♥10♥.
The 4♥ turn changed nothing and the 4♠ river shipped Zhang the pot to move him neck-and-neck with Ed Py for the chip lead.
