Total Entrants: 392
Players Remaining: 6

Average Stack: 1,305,000

John Butler (pictured) has been in and out of the chip lead at the final table and is back in front thanks to a double against Mike Cordell. 

Cordell raised to 125,000 under the gun and picked up a call from Butler on the button along with Simon Webster in the small blind along with Jacob Seale in the big blind.

The J♣5♠3 flop checked to Cordell and he bet 325,000. Butler shoved for 830,000 total and Cordell went into the tank. After counting chips back and forth a few times, Cordell called with A♣10. Butler had top-top A♠J but had to sweat after Cordell turned the 10.

The river was the 8♣ and Butler secured the hand. He is playing 2,190,000 and Cordell slides to 1,355,000.
