Joel Deutsch

Joel Deutsch was second in chips at the second break, but that didn’t last long. He jumped up to 5,100,000 and more than doubled his already huge stack in a few hands.

Knocking three players in a hurry will do that.

He is now the clear leader after Chris Durgin spent most of the day sitting there by himself.
