Matthew Blackwell doubled through James Jewell to take the chip lead.

The pot was three-bet preflop to 125,000 and Blackwell checked the js5h2s] flop.

Jewell shoved all in and Blackwell called with {a-}{j-}. Jewell had {k-}{k-}.

The turn was the {10-Clubs} and the river was the {j-Diamonds} and Blackwell quickly retook his seat and set his stack in front of him to be counted.

He now takes the chip lead.
