The players return from a break to begin Level 37, with increased blinds of 250,000-500,000 and a 500,000 ante. With three players remaining, the average chip stack is about 13.7 million (27 big blinds).

Here are the official chip counts from the break:

Seat 2.  Serge Dergham  –  7,000,000  (14 bb)
Seat 3.  Kevin Ho  –  30,700,000  (61 bb)

About seven minutes into the level, Abdelouahed Bouanani moved all in from the small blind for about 3,500,000, and Serge Dergham thought for a while before he called from the big blind with Kh5h.

Bouanani turned over 7s6h, and he needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came AhQh2hKs4h, and Dergham paired his king to win the pot and double up in chips.
