Ben Warlock (pictured) had an up and down middle part of Day 2 but is back in the lead thanks to a giant double against Jared Hemingway.
Hemingway opened under the gun to 20,000 and Warlock three-bet to 40,000 in the hijack. Hemingway called and checked the A♦Q♣8♥ flop over to Warlock. He shoved for about 375,000 total and Hemingway called with A♣J♠. Warlock rolled over 8♣8♦ for a flopped set and had Hemingway crushed.
The 2♣ turn locked up the pot for Warlock and he is up to 855,000. Hemingway was left with 40,000 and hit the rail one hand later.
