Kris Kwiatkowski is the next to fall victim to Weng’s impressive run of cards. Weng opened the pot from middle position and was shoved on by Kwiatkowski on his immediate left. Action came back to Weng who made the call putting him at risk and revealing a classic coin-flip situation.

Weng Q♠Q♣ vs Kwiatkowski A♦K♥

Board: 6♣K♣2♥3♣8♣

Kwiatkowski pulled ahead on the flop but for the 2nd time today, Weng makes running flush cards to eliminate an opponent. Weng increases his chip-lead and is now working with ~12M. The field is now playing short on the three remaining tables and one more bust-out will trigger a redraw for the final two tables.

Kris Kwiatkowski is eliminated in 20th place for $4,077.
