The river completed the board with the , Vogelsang checked for the last tie and this time Burns bet 2,090,000, keeping some chips behind, which was more than what Vogelsang had in front of him. Vogelsang dived into the tank, the dealer reached over to grab a time-bank when the first 30 seconds were over but Vogelsang asked if he could do it after the hand. Kisacikoglu was kind enough to help out by taking Vogelsang's time-bank and throwing four of them out every time the 30 seconds were up.

Burns tabled for the nut-flush. Vogelsang quietly turned around for the flopped pair of aces and made his way out of the tournament area.
