Hevad Khan Wins the Caesars Palace Classic ($1,000,000)

Hevad Khan raised to 800,000 from the button and Michael Kamran made the call from the big blind. The flop was dealt J92 and Kamran checked. Khan bet 900,000 and Kamran raised all in. Khan thought for a moment and made the call. Their cards:

Khan: J6
Kamran: K10

Hevad Khan WinsThe turn was the 7, giving Kamran more outs. He needed a king, queen or an eight to stay alive, but the river was the 10, giving the pot and the tournament to the BULLDOZER!

Khan let out a loud scream and picked up his chair in celebration. A crowd of drunken night clubbers came into chant with the champion as he showed a bit of the old "Rain" Khan after more than a year of self-imposed silence.

A video of the celebration will be posted shortly. Meanwhile, Khan took home $1 million, a Breitling watch and the custom Caesars Palace Classic Championship trophy.

Khan: JJ
Kamran: A10

"This is my night," yelled Khan after the hand.
