Still the short stack at the final table, Jon Bennett (pictured) has a bit more breathing room after doubling up through chip leader Eric Thompson.
Thompson opened under the gun to 45,000 and Bennett jammed for 150,000 from two seats over. Thompson said his hand was the worst he's opened with at the final table and put chips in with A♣7♦.
Bennett could take a breath with 7♣7♥ and exhaled after the Q♣9♥5♣9♠10♠ board completed. Bennett and Charles Bass both have about 320,000 and Thompson takes a small hit to go down to 1,850,000.
