With the final board showing 9s7h2h10hKd, Christopher Frank bet 14,000 from the big blind, his opponent raised to 45,000 from middle position, and Frank three-bet all in for more than 600K.

His opponent thought for a while before calling all in for about 185,000 with QsJd for a king-high straight.

But Frank turned over Kh4h to win the pot with a flush, eliminating his opponent from the tournament.
