Alex Foxen has picked up a few good-sized pots to knock Andrew Lichtenberger down to about 1.25 million.

Then they played a pot on a board of Ks6h4c8c7d. Foxen shoved the river, and Lichtenberger called, but both players had a five for identical eight-high straights to chop the pot.

Then Lichtenberger limped for 50,000, and Foxen checked his option in the big blind.

The flop came AhJc5c, Foxen checked, Lichtenberger bet 50,000, and Foxen called.

The turn card was the 7h, Foxen checked, Lichtenberger bet 300,000, and Foxen called.

The river card paired the board with the 7c, Foxen checked, Lichtenberger moved all in for 775,000, and Foxen thought for a little while before he called with As2c for two pair, aces and sevens.

But Lichtenberger turned over AdQc for with the same two pair and a queen kicker. Lichtenberger won the pot to double up in chips.

Andrew Lichtenberger  –  2,400,000  (48 bb)
Alex Foxen  –  2,475,000  (50 bb)

With two players left, the average chip stack is about 2.44 million (49 big blinds). Here are the remaining payouts at stake:

1st:  $699,850
2nd:  $453,960
