The rich get richer.
Chip leader Stuart Henrique opened to 13,000 and picked up a call from the hijack. His cutoff opponent raised to 50,000 and only Henrique called to see the flop. His opponent put his last 170,000 in the middle and Henrique put him at risk.
Henrique was ahead with aces up but the turn put his opponent in the lead for the double. Then the spiked on the river to give Henrique aces full of deuces, half the table jumped out of their seats, and Henrique knocked another player out while moving his stack over a million.
Stuart Henrique – 1,033,000 (207 bb)
