Jonathan Betancur raised to 600,000 on the button and Johan Schumacher three-bet to 1,600,000 in the big blind. Betancur jammed and Schumacher snap-called for his 4,650,000 chips.
Schumacher was ahead with cowboys but needed to hold to avoid hitting the rail. The board ran out to double him up and leave Betancur with the short stack at the table.
On the next hand, Schumacher jammed in the small blind and Betancur called off his 2,700,000 stack in the big blind.
The players were flipping and the dealer spread the flop to keep Schumacher ahead. The turn left Betancur needing a queen or ten, but the river was the to eliminate him.
Schumacher and Gershon Distenfeld now begin heads-up play with Schumacher holding nearly two times as many chips to start.
