Stephen Song after moving all-in (seat 9)

The board reads 9♠6♠679, and there is around 290,000 in the middle.  Cao Yiming is deep in the tank, and Stephen Song is sitting motionless with 105,000 in chips sitting in front of him.

Yiming thinks for nearly three minutes, as a crowd begins to gather around the table to watch the monster pot taking place.

Yiming begins to shift back and forth in his chair, and apologizes to the table for taking so long.  After nearly four full minutes have passed, Yiming tosses in a chip to call.

Song shrugs his shoulders as he turns over 10♣10, and Yiming shows QQ.

"I put you on pocket tens," Yiming says to Song as Song stands up from the table and prepares for his payout.

After Song has existed the tournament area Yiming says, "It was because he shoved the river."

He then fills in the blog staff on the action leading up to the flop.

According to Yiming, Song had raised to 9,000 pre-flop in middle position, and Yiming re-raised to 21,000. Song called. Song then check-called a bet of 21,000 on the flop.  On the turn, Song checked, Yiming bet 52,000, Song raised to 105,000, and Yiming called. On the river, Song open-shoved all in.

After this pot, Yiming has taken the chip lead with over 600,000 in chips.

Cao Yiming - 610,000 (152 bb)
Stephen Song - Eliminated in 133rd place, for $1,209
