After having to come back a couple of times from being at less than 10M, Ciancio is now over 20M after winning another pot off of Raoul Cheong.

Cheong opened the button to 600k and was 3-bet by Ciancio in the big blind to 1.7M. Cheong called and they would be heads-up.

Flop: J♣7♦7♥ Pot: 3.575M


Turn: J♦

Ciancio checked. Cheong bet 2M and Ciancio called.

River: J♥ Pot: 7.575M

Ciancio now took the lead and shoved all-in covering Cheong. Cheong had ~10M remaining and after some time made the fold. The players are now taking a 10-minute break with 5 minutes remaining in the level. Full chip counts will be available shortly.
