Jesse Jones maintains his chip lead one player from the two table redraw but Gilbert Martinez is right behind him. Martinez knocked out Clarence Prevost and put himself over 600,000.
Prevost had just lost an all-in to double up Seth Evans and was down to under 20 big blinds. The all-in was for 172,000 and Prevost held A♣Q♠ against the J♣J♠ of Martinez. The board ran dry for Prevost and Martinez collected the chips.
Martinez is playing 650,000 and is inches behind the 700,000 of Jones.
