Hand #14: It folded to Tommy Nguyen in the small blind who surveyed short stack Michael Benko's stack before moving all in. Benko snap-called for his last 3,500,000.

Tommy Nguyen: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}
Michael Benko: {a-Clubs}{q-Hearts}

The flop came {k-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} giving Nguyen top pair. As the {6-Clubs} turn came Benko turned to fist-bump Nguyen, saying "Nice hand." The river, however, was the {7-Clubs} giving Benko a four-card flush.

"Wow," said Benko, "I didn't even see that."
