Average Stack: 549,000
Since the field reduced to two tables, Michael Newman has been the largest gainer in of the remaining players and is the first to hit 1,000,000. Newman took out two players once the redraw took place and then eliminated Helen Ellis to boost his stack even higher.
Newman limped under the gun and Ellis moved all-in for 153,000 from a few seats over. Newman called with 4♠4♥ and the K♦J♥ of Ellis was plenty live. The Q♠8♥4♦ flop gave Newman a set but Ellis picked up a draw on the 10♠ turn to maintain a few outs. Needing an ace or a nine, the J♠ was a brick and Newman picked up the pot.
Newman sits behind 1,450,000, giving him control of 20 percent of the chips in play.
