The 2003 World Series of Poker Main Event champ, Chris Moneymaker, raised to 1,500 from under the gun and cleared the field all the way to Marty Zabib, who made the call from the small blind. Hank Farrell then three-bet to around 6,800 from the big blind, Moneymaker called off for the same amount, and Zabib came along for the ride.

The two active players proceeded to check it down as the board ran out {7-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{J-Clubs}{10-Hearts} and Zabib rolled over {K-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} for trips. Farrell simply mucked while Moneymaker showed {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} before taking his exit from the 2012 WSOP Main Event.
