Mike Cordell's good fortune on Day 2 continues as he notched a double knockout to take the chip lead with 825,000.
Joey Huey was all-in from the small blind for 55,000 and David Trager from the hijack along with Mike Cordell on the button had him at risk.
They both checked the K♣7♣5♦ flop and Trager bet 40,000 on the 7♦ turn. Cordell called and the K♠ completed the board. Trager bet all-in for 260,000 and Cordell snap-called with K♦J♥ for a full house.
Trager's 6♦6♥ was in hell and the lower full house of Huey 5♠5♥ went into the muck. Only four players from the three table redraw, Cordell is in the lead by close to 200,000 over Harris Smith.
