Here are the official chip counts from the break:

Seat 1.  Arthur Conan  –  100,000  (3 bb)
Seat 2.  Sam Soverel  –  1,055,000  (35 bb)
Seat 3.  Chris Brewer  –  1,590,000  (53 bb)
Seat 4.  Seth Davies  –  2,505,000  (84 bb)

In the first hand back from the break, Arthur Conan moved all in from the button for 100,000, and Sam Soverel called from the small blind with Ac6d.

Conan turned over Ah7h, and needed his hand to hold to stay alive.

The board came KhKc3h9d5d, and the two low cards on the board allowed Conan’s kicker to play, giving him the double-up.

Arthur Conan  –  260,000  (9 bb)
Sam Soverel  –  955,000  (32 bb)

Two hands later, Conan got it all in from the big blind for 230,000 with 2h2d, and he needed it to hold to stay alive against the Ac9s of Chris Brewer on the button.

The board came Kc8h6s5h3h, and the pocket deuces held up for Conan to win the pot and double up in chips again.

Conan had been down to a single big blind — 25,000 — and a short while later he’s got 505,000.

Arthur Conan  –  505,000  (17 bb)
Chris Brewer  –  1,290,000  (43 bb)

With four players remaining from a field of 42, the average chip stack is about 1.31 million (44 big blinds), and the next player to bust will earn $203,700.
