I think rees has like a 16 to 1 chip lead. Farber has got a CSI - 'chip stack index' of 5 or 6 blinds.
Chance of him taking a shot to win the title are reasonable alot of players at this point will be pushing a wide range and reiss might call him with.
its a standard shove for a drawing hand at this stage imo he either takes 1.4 million to his stack or has a good chance to double up. He hasn't got enough fold equity at this stage to push reiss iff any decent hand
