In the penultimate day of the tournament, Danny Wong was a chip leader, but when the final table was formed he had the smallest stack. Wong and Collins clashed half an hour later on a board of {q-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{3-Hearts}{2-Diamonds}. Wong bet the flop and shoved the turn with {6-Clubs}{5-Clubs} and Collins called with his own pair and gutshot, {4-Clubs}{3-Clubs}. Unfortunately for him, Wong had the better pair and a six on the river only improved the chip leader to winning trips.
