David Yan began the day with the chip lead but just hit the rail in fifth place for $341,187. Watson, effectively earned his fifth double-up in the process.
Yan opened the button for 4.5 million before he called a jam by Watson to 8.3 million. Yan was at risk but Watson would have had less than an ante remaining if he lost the hand.
Watson paired up both his cards to improve to two pair on the board and his good run continues.
