Matthew Lambrecht moved all in from the cutoff for 320,000, and Scott Baumstein called from the big blind with 9s9d. Lambrecht turned over AcJd, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Jc10s10hAsKh, and Lambrecht won the pot with two pair, aces and jacks, to double up in chips.

Matthew Lambrecht  –  700,000  (18 bb)
Scott Baumstein  –  2,250,000  (56 bb)

The next hand, Lambrecht got it all in under the gun for 700,000 with KsKh, and needed it to hold against the JsJc of Mike Baroud in the big blind, who had him covered by just 15,000.

The board came 10s9c5s9h3d, and the pocket kings held up for Lambrecht to win again, doubling up in chips as he knocked Baroud down to less than a small blind.

Matthew Lambrecht  –  1,460,000  (37 bb)
Mike Baroud  –  15,000  (<1 sb)

With five players remaining, the average chip stack is about 1,370,000 (46 big blinds). The remaining players are all guaranteed at least $15,905 each.
