John Richards opened to 125,000 on the button, and Michael Kuney raised from the small blind, leaving just over 100,000 chips behind. Richards called, and the rest of Kuney's chips went in on the flop, with Richards calling.
Kuney was ahead preflop, but the flop gave Richards top two pair. No help came for Kuney on the turn or river, and he hits the rail in ninth place.
The win gave Richards a formidable stack of more than 100 big blinds.
