# Phase 10 how to play on after completing 5 and 3

3 people are playing and I lay down the set of 5 and set of 3 but still have cards in my hand. Someone completes the 5 and 2 and goes out. So we need to play another round. What do I play? I already lay down the 5 and 3. Should I start over?

TLDR

• Based on the wording of the rules you won...

So the rules say that a player is the winner if:

THE WINNER: The first player to complete Phase 10 at the end of a hand is the winner. If two or more players complete Phase 10 in the same hand, then the player with the fewest total points is the winner. In the event of a tie, the players that tied replay Phase number 10. The first one to go out is the winner.

Looking at this specifically according to the wording it reads that once a hand has ended the first player to have completed phase ten has won. It does not say the winner finished the hand or that the winner finished without cards. It simply says that at the end of a hand the first to have completed the final phase is the winner.
