Xie Eliminates Another To Take Lead

• Level 8: 500-1,000, 100 ante

Bo "Box" Xie might've done enough to finish the day as the chip leader after taking out another player in the final few hands of play.

After he and another player both committed 2,300 pre flop, a flop of {j-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{7-Hearts} sparked a betting war between the two before both players committed all their chips.

Xie: {5-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Opponent: {10-Hearts}{8-Spades}

Xie was in trouble, after his opponent had flopped the straight. However, running {9-Diamonds} and {a-Diamonds} gave Xie the unlikely flush adding another 30,000 to his stack to sit atop the rest of the field.
