David Bach was just announced as the first player to cross the 3-million-chip mark, but he's got some company now. In fact, he's in second place again.
We just saw Russell Thomas get his last 580,000 chips into the middle on a flop, but we missed the betting action that led to the shove. It's hard to fault him for going with when he flopped the set, but Daryl Jace had flopped even better with . The nuts, they call that. He needed to fade a board-pair to earn the knockout, and the turn and river were safe and clean.
With the elimination of Thomas, Jace has worked his stack al the way up to about 3.3 million and into the top spot overall.
