From Short Stack to Chip Leader For Ryan Jones

Ryan Jones raises to 110,000 in middle position, and Jeremy Joseph re-raises to 305,000 in the cutoff. Daniel Engels confirms the last bet of 305,000, and then re-raises to 710,000 on the button. Both blinds fold, and with action back on Jones, he shoves all in for 1,675,000. Joseph folds, and Engels calls.


The flop comes    , leaving Engels in the lead with his pair of queens. He maintains that lead when the turn comes the  , but the   on the river gives Jones a pair of aces to win the pot and double up.

Jones' rail erupts in cheers.

"No gamble, no future. From short stack to the chip leader," rail bird Kenny Nguyen says.

Ryan Jones - 3,780,000 (75 bb)
Daniel Engels - 1,950,000 (39 bb)
