Ben Yu: {X-}{X-} / {A-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}{6-Clubs} / {X-}
Phil Hellmuth: {X-}{X-} / {5-Diamonds}{A-Spades}{2-Spades}{7-Diamonds} / {X-}
Todd Brunson: {X-}{X-} / {8-Spades}{J-Spades}{Q-Hearts}{2-Diamonds} / {X-}

Picking up the action on fourth street, Yu and Hellmuth checked, then Brunson fired a bet. Yu and Hellmuth both called.

On fifth street, action checked around, and then on sixth street Yu led with a bet. Hellmuth called, and Brunson called.

On seventh, Yu and Hellmuth checked, and Brunson bet. Yu tanked for a little bit, then folded, and Hellmuth began to talk.

"Oh man, I hope you have trips," he said. "This is such a sick hand, I don't even want to pay it off."

"I guess you could have trips," said Hellmuth as he tossed in the call. Brunson showed the {9-Spades}{7-Spades}{4-Spades} for a spade flush, and Hellmuth showed the table that he had made a straight.

"I can't f***ing believe it," commented Hellmuth, staying down at his losing straight. "Almost a straight flush."

Hellmuth went on a little more, talking about how it was a cooler of a hand. Brunson added that if it was a cooler, they both would've made a straight flush. Hellmuth fired back by saying something about later on when the chips really go in during a big pot, he'll really have it and Brunson will pay him off.

At any rate, Brunson climbed to over 1.1 million in chips as Hellmuth dipped back a bit to 320,000.
