Jason Ritchie is running away with his lead after putting pressure on both of his opponents.

The first hand saw Ritchie limp the small blind and call a raise of 400k for Krapivin. The flop came 5♣6♦10♣ and Ritchie check/raised a bet of 325k to 1.2M total. Krapivin called, giving up the lead. The turn fell a Q♦ and Ritchie fired 2.075M which was enough to earn the fold. After the hand Krapivin is down to ~8M.

Next hand got a bit from both players after Krapivin opened his button to 350k and Laieta 3-bet him from the small blind to 1.05M. Ritchie took the opportunity to put in a cold 4-bet to 4M total and force both players out adding another 1.5M to his stack.
