After Men Nguyen, Peter Neff, and Mark Erickson limped, Bradley Anderson made it 300,000 on the button.
Scott Abrams called in the big blind, as did the limpers, and over 1,500,000 was already in the pot.
On the flop, all five players checked, but that civility would not last, starting on the turn.
Action was checked to Anderson who bet 1,000,000. Only Nguyen and Erickson called. The pot was now over 4,500,000.
On the river , Nguyen moved all in for 1,705,000. Erickson took a moment and called, then after several minutes, Anderson called as well.
The winner(s) of the near ten million chip pot were now determined.
Anderson showed and was shocked to see he was the only player holding ace-three to claim the low half of the pot.
Nguyen showed for a queen-high straight.
Erickson then frustratedly splashed his hand down before it was turned up, revealing for a turned top two pair and rivered set of queens, neither of which were good for high, as he lost out on a share of easily the biggest pot of the tournament so far.
