The hand previous to the break and just a few from the money gave another favorable pot to Wen Zhang.  The hand started when Wen opened to 18k and opponent 3 bet to 36k.  Flop all low went check check, the turn brought a diamond draw to which Zhang led out for 20k and opponent flats.  River comes a blank and Zhang open shoves having his opponent well covered and he snap calls his roughly 150k remaining.  Zhang, none too pleased with the call reveals his A high, however his opponent, who correctly read the play as not adding up, only has K high, and is eliminated.  Zhang is now second in chips to Agenor Desouza who has continue to build and is now at 1.803 million.
