Shaotong Chang, Day 3 Level 26

Shaotong Chang came into Day 3 with 670k after doubling Chris McNally on one of the last hands of Day 2 play in a massive ~3.6M chip pot. She has been working her stack back up on Day 3 and just busted Yehuda Balin in an all-in pre-flop situation.

Ruslan Arstanaliyev had opened the pot 150k from under the gun and was 3-bet by Balin on his immediate left. Chang was next to act and moved all-in for ~1.5M which covered Balin’s stack. Arstanliyev got out of the way before Balin stuck it in.
