Championship: 4th Place - Pahuja

$2500 + $200 Championship Deep Stack No Limit Hold'em (Re-Entry) 

Vinny Pahuja (Hicksville, NY) 

Blinds 40k/80k/5k ante

Scott Baumstein raises to 160k
Vinny Pahuja makes it 325k
Patrick Chan 4-bets to 800k, Baumstein folds
Pahuja moves all in for ~3 million, Chan calls

Chan: 10♠ 10
Pahuja: A J

Flop: 3 K 7♠ (no change)

Turn: 5 (Pahuja picks up flush draw)

River: 10
Pahuja misses his flush and finishes in 4th place.

"It was a really tough final table," says Pahuja, "whoever wins, deserves it."

Pahuja was the chip leader heading into Day 2, which earned him a $3,000 bonus.  He rode the big stack into Day 3, but was card dead heading towards the final table.

"I'm happy with fourth. I could've just as easily finished 18th."

Chan now has 6 million chips and is three handed with Brock Parker (5.5 million) and Baumstein the chip leader with 8 million.
