Billy Kopp raised to 52,000 with pocket aces, which Dennis Phillips called with a pair of fours. Nasr el Nasr re-raised to 225,000 with queens, and Kopp raised once again to 558,000. Phillips got out of the way and el Nasr went all-in, which Kopp naturally called, creating a 3.2 million chip pot. The board did not help el Nasr, but the flop contained a 4, which would have given Phillips a set. Kopp moved into second place overall with 4.6 million chips.
