With about 140,000 in the pot and the flop reading 7s10c5c, Barbaro Diaz checked from under the gun and Philip Shing bet 35,000 from the button. Diaz check-raised to 105,000 and Shing called.

The turn was the 9d, Diaz bet 150,000, Shing used a time-extension before he raised all in for 308,000 and Diaz called after a few moments.

Diaz:  As6s
Shing:  9h9s

Shing was ahead with a set of nines against Diaz’s gutshot straight draw, but the river was the 8c to give Diaz a ten-high straight to win the pot.

“What?” asked/said Shing upon seeing the result of the hand. “Wow, sick one.”
