Chip leader for the better part of day 2, John Hinds, had run into some bad luck and missed draws to have his once nearly 3M in chips down right around 1 Mil.  Ron Sims had opened mid position to 125k pre-flop, and Hinds raised to 350k from the BB and Sims called.

Flop: 5dJc3d both players checked

Turn: 4h Hinds bet 250k, Sims moved a stack in covering Hinds, and Hinds called

River: Ac

Simms: 77

Hinds: JJ for a set of Jacks to win the hand and double up.

Immediately following this hand, Hinds took out a short stack with 250k left.  Hinds found some luck when a 3 hit holding K3 to his opponents KQ to eliminate him in 59th place for $1,568, and put Hinds back over the 2M chip mark.
