Hand #70:

Hossein Ensan opened for 500,000 and this time he had {j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}. Andrey Shatilov called with {8-Spades}{8-Clubs}.

Ji Zhang had {a-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}, thought about his move for a few seconds, and declared that he was all in. Ensan re-shoved and Shatilov left them to it.

The cards ran out {j-Hearts}{a-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{5-Spades}. Zhang had hit his ace, but the set for Ensan all but sealed his fate and the amateur from Germany was the next player to hit the rail.
