Beauregard: AQ
Corcione: A9

"Aces are light," tablemate Chris Tryba says as the flop comes Q6♠2.

The river is the 4.  Beauaregard quickly shoves all in, and Balcom snap calls.

Beauregard turns over 67♥ for missed straight and flush draws, and Balcom shows A♠3 for two pair to double up.

The dealer counts down his 263,000 chips, and passes the same amount over to him from Beauregard's stack.

After this hand, Balcom now has the chip lead.

"Chip lead," Tryba says while pointing to Beauregard. "Chip lead," he says again as he points to Balcom.  "Now, chip lead," he says as he points to himself.

"And then back to me," Corcione says with a slight smile.

Kevin Balcom - 996,000 (83 bb)
