William Stanford (pictured) has been on a short stack for most of the final two tables but now has some breathing room after doubling up through Nick Kortenber.
Tim Burt opened under the gun to 105,000 and Kortenber called in the small blind. Stanford defended his big blind and the flop came out A♣Q♠9♣. Kortenber led for 110,000 and only Stanford called. The turn was the 8♠ and Kortenber shoved for 425,000 effective and Stanford snap-called with J♠10♠.
Kortenber was live with A♦9♦ but missed on the 7♦ river. Stanford doubles to 1,340,000 and Kortenber falls back to 1,150,000.
