Less than 5 minutes into play on day 3 and the field had already lost 3 short stacks: Augusto Honrado, Sean Hu, and Kenny Lay. At this point in the game with blinds going up, a double up is needed sooner rather than later, for much of the field. Sai Wang had a bit of luck with his shorter stack, when David McConachie raised the SB to 140k pre-flop and Wang called from the BB.
Flop: 84A McConachie bet 80k, Wang raised to 175k, and McConachie went all in, well covering Wang, and Wang called.
Board ran out: 3h5s
McConachie: J8hh for a pair of eights
Wang: A10dd for a pair of Aces to win the hand and double up his remaining 575k.
