Carter Phillips opened to 160,000 from the button only to have Najib Kamand move all in for his last 1,350,000 from the small blind. Tom Chambers was in the big blind and also announced that he was all in. Phillips folded and the hands were shown:

Kamand: {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}
Chambers: {10-Hearts}{10-Clubs}

Chambers was ahead with the tens and stayed the way when the dealer spread out a flop of {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{5-Hearts}. Fourth street brought the {4-Clubs} and Kamand was one card away from elimination.

The {7-Clubs} was of no help to Kamand and he was sent home in 5th place to find solace in his $153,578 in tournament winnings.
