SugarRush (Day 2): Wen Zhang Takes Out Two

Level 19 (6,000/12,000/2,000)
Total SugarRush Challenge Entries: 520
Players Remaining: 25
Chip Average: 565,000


Wen Zhang is closing in on the chip lead following the elimination of two players. 

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 QJ8♠. 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 109 for a flopped straight with a straight flush redraw. Ely was drawing slim with 82 while Chandra was live to hit a better straight with K10.

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.
