Jake Schwartz raised from the cutoff to 800,000, Scott Woodring reraised from the button to 2,400,000, and Schwartz moved all in.

Woodring called all in for 9,200,000 with QdQc, and Schwartz turned over Js10s. Woodring needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came Jh7h4c8dQh, and Schwartz paired his jack on the flop, but improved no further. Woodring won the pot with a rivered set of queens to double up in chips — and take the chip lead.

Scott Woodring  –  19,400,000  (49 b)
Jake Schwartz  –  6,200,000  (16 bb)
