The players have returned from break and Joey Couden continues to climb. Couden is certainly no stranger to the Almighty Stack as he has already made the final table twice in this very event.

He finished 4th in the 2015 Almighty Stack for over $60,000 and 3rd November 2019 for over $55,000.

There are less than two levels of play left in the night and Couden is sitting behind a healthy stack of 775,000.

In one of the last hands of the previous level Will Givens raised to 11,000 from middle position and Alex Rocha defended his big blind. They went heads up to the {q-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{3-Clubs} flop and Rocha check-called a bet of 15,000 from Givens.

The turn was the {8-Hearts} and both players checked. The {4-Spades} completed the board and Rocha bet 10,000.

"I just want to see it" said Givens as he tossed out the calling chips and Rocha showed {7-Clubs}{4-Clubs} for a pair of fours.

"I had ace three of hearts, you're good" Givens said flashing the {3-Hearts} and Rocha took the pot to move over half a million
