Patrick Tardif raised from the cutoff and saw Barry Hutter three-bet from the button. Jamie O'Connor and Joe Cada folded in the blinds, and with the action back on Tardif, he four-bet jammed for just over 2,000,000.
Hutter paused for a second to verbally confirm the amount and then called.
Tardif got no help from the board after running his pocket pair into a dominating hand, and Hutter picked up the pot to continue his rise from Day 1 chip leader.
Tardif departed from the table in 9th place and secured his biggest live cash with his $59,338 winnings.
