William Stanford was left for dead just a few minutes ago, but two double ups later, he is over 2,000,000 with Nick Kortenber now on the short stack.  

Stanford shoved for 420,000 under the gun with Q9 and Kyle Cartwright called on the button with 55♠. A nine hit the flop and Stanford had his first double. The next hand, David Troutman opened to 180,000 on the button and Kortenber called out of the small blind.

Stanford shoved for 990,000 and Troutman conceded his hand. Kortenber tanked for two minutes with three-quarters of his stack at risk should he decide to call.

He eventually did with Q10♠ and was up against the A♣8 of Stanford. An ace hit the turn and Stanford doubled through, leaving Kortenber with only four big blinds.
