Amaury LopezIn a hand that extended a few minutes into the break, Amaury Lopez (cutoff) was all-in on the river with a board of Jc[3j]2sAs4c.  He had his opponent in seat 1 (button) covered and the player tanked with his tournament life on the line.

The player eventually tossed in the last of his chips, showing AhQd for a pair of Aces.  Amaury held 5h3d for the rivered straight to take the pot.  He chipped up to about 45k while sending his opponent to the rail.

52 players remain.  Average stack is 33k.
