3rd Place: Shaun Suller ($477,470)

After checking a [Kc][4d][2s] flop, Shaun Suller check-called James Carroll's bet on the [Jc] turn.  Both players went crazy after the [Qs] hit the river, getting their chips in the middle.  When the dust settled, the players opened their hands:

Shaun: [Qd][Js]
James: [Ah][Ts]

The river had made Shaun two pair, but it had also given James the nuts.  Shaun would dejectedly accept his 3rd place finish and the $477,470 that goes along with it.
