Michael Moncek and Joe McKeehen had already built a big pot heading to the river on a board of {3-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{j-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}. McKeehen put out another bet on the river before Moncek raised.

McKeehen tanked for a few moments before calling. Moncek flipped over {10-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} for the flopped set that turned into a full house on the river. McKeehen flashed {a-}{k-}, having turned a straight, before mucking to send the monster pot to Moncek, and with it the tournament chip lead.
