Hand #24: Chris Chong limped in from the small blind and Shyam Srinivasan checked his option. The flop came {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{j-Clubs} and Chong led out for 400,000. Srinivasan quickly mucked his cards and Chong raked in the pot.

Hand #25: Chong raised to 825,000 on the button and picked up the blinds and antes.

Hand #26: The action folded to Daniel Corbett in the small blind who announced all in. Tommy Nguyen looked down at his cards in the big blind and instantly made the call for his last 4,750,000 chips.

Nguyen tabled {7-Spades}{7-Hearts} and was in a race situation against the {k-Hearts}{q-Clubs} of Corbett. The board ran out {8-Clubs}{5-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} and Nguyen's pocket sevens held on to earn him a key double up.
