Neil Channing opened to 250,000 from the button and Henry Lu moved all in. Channing called for his tournament life and the cards were tabled.

Channing: {A-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds}
Lu: {4-Clubs} {4-Hearts}

The crowd rose to their feet and watched the flop come {2-Hearts} {3-Spades} {Q-Spades}. The turn came {K-Diamonds} and Channing picked up several more outs. But he would brick when the river fell {3-Clubs}.

Lu's rail mobbed him on stage in celebration in stark contrast to Channing who sat motionless, completely stunned that the tournament was over. He finally got up from his chair, shook Lu's hand and walked out to a round of applause.
