The biggest pot of the tournament just played out at the Final Table, with Sean Casey and Ryan Chua getting in pre-flop leveling war that ended with Casey being all-in and at risk, needing a lot of help to survive.

The action was picked up with Casey raising to 500,000 from the button and Chua answered with a raise to 1,300,000 from the small blind.

Casey thought for a moment and then announced he was all-in, with the rest of the table shooting each other looks as the knew two huge stacks were about to prey on each other.

Chua only had to call 600,000 more, but that was close to 75% of his remaining chip stack, so he took close to two minutes to decide on his action.

He would eventually call and table {Ad}{9d} and Casey would curse himself as his play didn’t work, turning over {8c}{5c}.

He was live though, until the flop came out {Jh}{As}{Ks} and Sean needed a miracle to stay alive.

It would not come though, as the turn and river came out {Js} {Jd} and Casey would be sent to the rail in 6th place for just over $1,600.

After coming in as one of the short stacks, Ryan Chua is now the chip leader of the BPO National Championship Final Table, sitting with close to 4,200,000.
