Justin Surges Into Chip Lead

Justin Chan

Justin Chan is now back in the driver's seat after doubling off of chip leader Tom Chou.

Pre-flop, Tom bet out 250,000 from the button and, after a fold from Lei Long in the small blind, Justin made the call from the big blind.

Flop: {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}

As soon as the flop came, Tom fired out a bet of 700,000 and Justin responded by going all-in. Tom made the call and the cards were tabled:

Justin: {a-Spades}{9-Clubs}
Tom: {2-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}

Justin had hit top two pair on the flop but he was still vulnerable as Tom had the diamond flush draw.

However, no diamond came the turn and river blanked out, doubling Justin's stack to over three million in chips.
