Chance Kornuth raised from the button to 100,000, Michael Wang reraised from the small blind to 400,000, and Kornuth reraised to 750,000.

Wang thought for a while before he five-bet all in for about 2,550,000, and Kornuth quickly called with JsJd.

Wang turned over 9h9c, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came AhAd6cKc6h, and the pocket jacks held up for Kornuth to win the pot and eliminate Michael Wang in third place.
