We weren't there to catch how it went down, but when we noticed David "Doc" Sands leaving the tournament area, we took to twitter to uncover the story.

Ari Engel was under the gun when he opened it up with a pot sized raise. The action the folded around to Max Pescatori in the small blind and he re raised the pot. Humberto Brenes got out of the way in the big blind and Engel committed the last of his chips - less than the raise from Pescatori.
When the flop was dealt on the felt, Engel bagan leaving the table saying, "well that leaves me pretty much dead." The on the turn and the on the river weren't what Engel was looking for and he left the tournament area.

Earlier in the day Phil Hellmuth finished in 4th place in the historic $1,000,000 Big One For One Drop. Well, he has now taken in seat in tonight's tournament, with his original starting stack of 9,000 being blinded down to 5,500 over the last few hours.
Nam Le has recently busted out of this tournament and we were there to catch all the action during the last hand of his night. It started with a late position player opening with a raise to 1,250. Chip Jett then called on his direct left, along with the small blind and Le in the big blind.
On the flop, the small blind checked and Le shoved for his last 425 in chips. The original aggressor called, Jett folded and the small blind also called. Le watched on as the two remaining players checked down the turn and the river. The original aggressor tabled his first, with his hand enough to see his two opponent's cards into the muck.
