First, Jackie Liu completed a second double through Whittington, jamming and fading Blake’s .
It’s a big pot for Jackie, who surpasses Lee for second, with a little over 7.5 million.
Whittington takes a hit, having risen as high as 12 million. However he immediately gets it back when Chris Lee in the small goes with fives for his 3.6 million over a button raise from Jackie.
Blake has the answer with nines, and gets the money in as well. Jackie folds, and Blake improves to a full house by the river. Chris, Blake, and Jackie shake hands as a long three handed battle is over.
Heads up begins with Whittington holding a slight advantage of 10 million to nine million.
