Kevin Chan opens to 45,000 under the gun, and Michael LaRocca three-bet shoves for about 260,000 on the button. Chan calls to put his opponent at risk.

Chan: AhKd
LaRocca: 3h3d

“Classic race situation,” Darryll Fish handles the commentary from across the table.

The 5h4c2s flop keeps things interesting.

“Give him an ace,” LaRocca admonishes the dealer.

The turn is the Ks, though, giving Chan a big lead with one card to come.

“I said an ace,” LaRocca reiterates.

The river is the blank Jc, and Chan wins the pot with a pair of kings. LaRocca is eliminated in fifth place.

Kevin Chan – 880,000 (44 bb)
