In the final hand, Chance Kornuth caught the nuts on the J♣-J♥-8♥ flop, holding J♠-8♣ and began to profit from Chad Campbell, who was dealt 10♣-9♥. The turn brought 9♠, that is, a blank. Campbell, by the way, hit a straight on the river as 7♦ showed up, but that was not enough to win the tournament.
