With three relatively equal stacks, one big hand could be a major swing. One developed shortly after the restart. Ryan Hughes opened to 500,000 from the button and Michael Turniec three-bet to 1,350,000 from the small blind. Hughes put in a fourth bet for all his chips having Turniec covered. Turniec quickly called with a monster.

Turniec: KhKc
Hughes: AhJh

Turniec was in great shape for a massive double and his kings were safe on the 9s8s2d9c8c board. Just like that, Hughes went from chip leader to short stack.

Michael Turniec – 12,475,000 (50 bb)
Ryan Hughes – 2,000,000 (8 bb)
