Chris Behney pocket aces at a fortunate time and used “the blades” to carve up Tony Cheng to move over 750,000. 

The race to be the first player over 1,000,000 is at a fever pitch with more players climbing near that landmark during Level 18. Chris Behney recently eliminated Tony Cheng and is now three-quarters of the way toward seven-figures and more importantly, among the current chip leaders.

Action folded to Cheng on the button, who moved all-in for 165,000 and Behney called out of the small blind. Travis Hartshorn folded his big blind and Behney rolled over AA♠ which Cheng could only laugh at as he flipped up 10♠5♣.

The J♣4♣2 flop gave Cheng a few backdoor outs but he failed to improve on the turn and hit the rail. Behney was down to 20,000 earlier in the day but has chipped up immensely since then and is in the process of adding to his first career SugarRush score.
