Will Failla raised from the hijack to 13,000, Steven McKoy called from the cutoff, and Duff Charette called from the big blind.

All three players checked to the turn on a board of Ac10c7h7d, Charette checked, and Failla bet 20,000. McKoy folded, and Charette check-raised to 55,000. Failla called.

The river card was the 2c, Charette checked, Failla moved all in for 97,000, and Charette called with 8d7s for trip sevens. But Failla turned over 5c3c to win the pot with a club flush and double up in chips.
