The line at the payout desk is gradually becoming more filled with the field already light a few more players in this level. RunGood's Julie Cornelius is among them after running into a cooler blind versus blind against Jesse Jones (pictured).
Cornelius shoved for 85,000 in the small blind with J♦J♥ and Jones woke up with A♥A♠ in the big blind. Jones flopped quads and Cornelius shrugged as she shook hands and went to collect her payout. Jones is the chip leader now with 690,000.
After the elimination of Cornelius, Nik Behl hit the rail when his A♣K♠ lost a flip to Shane Fuller's 10♣10♥. An ace flopped but a ten hit the turn and Fuller is up to 580,000 as a result.
Additionally, Dan Martin busted Cory Smith and is playing 620,000, putting him in second behind Jones.
