Daniel Bak, Day 2 Level 26

Bak has been riding one of the shorter stacks for the majority of Day 2 play and would need to win a flip to get up over 30 big blinds. Mo Farah opened from under the gun and was shoved on by Bak for 815k, Farah made the call leaving himself ~300k behind.

Bak 8♦8♥ vs Farak A♠K♥ Pot: ~1.8M

Board: J♣7♥3♥5♣J♥

Bak holds against the unpaired hand and gets some breathing room. Farah will now be extremely short and under immediate pressure.
