Start of final table chip leader Michael Beaty (pictured) managed to lose his lead and get it back all in one orbit with Jose Yoel Gonzalez Ramirez and Dan Lowery on opposite ends of the tree. Beaty shoved the small blind for 377,000 effective with 64♠ and Ramirez woke up with A♠J in the big blind.

The K♠10823 board allowed Ramirez to double and Beaty took a hit down to 900,000.

A few hands later, Beaty opened to 85,000 in early position and Lowery called in the small blind.

Lowery checked the J♠1010♠ flop and Beaty checked behind. Lowery check-called for 85,000 on the 4♣ turn and knocked again on the 9 river. Beaty bet 275,000 and Lowery called to see Beaty show him A10♣. Lowery insinuated he had pocket aces and takes the hit down to under 20 big blinds.

Beaty is once again the chip leader with Sharon Livingston the short stack, holding 120,000 (5 bb).

Michael Beaty - 1,525,000 (64 bb)
Dan Lowery - 435,000 (18 bb)
Jose Yoel Gonzalez Ramirez - 850,000 (34 bb)
