Kuhn tanked for several minutes and faced the additional pressure of multiple television cameras waiting on his action. He appeared to even shake his head and chuckle at times. Ultimately, he put in the chips.

"Two pair," Moneymaker said as he turned over   . Kuhn could only show    and took his exit from the table.

"I wanted to slow roll the sh-- out of him but I can't do that in the main event," Moneymaker said after mentioning they joked earlier about slow rolling each other. Moneymaker also remarked that they have a lot of history playing together that could've influenced Kuhn's decision.

At the end of it, Kuhn was sent to the rail, and the 2003 Main Event champion now sits as one of the top players on the leaderboard with a comfy stack of over one million.
