There was a three-way preflop all-in situation at Table #37, with the player on the button all in for 61,500, Raymond Sykes all in from the cutoff for 62,000, and the UTG player covering them both.

UTG:  KsKc
Raymond Sykes:  QhQd
Button:  AhQs

The board came 7d3d3cJd2d, and Sykes had already started walking away after the flop, just glancing back at the board before realizing he made a runner-runner diamond flush. Sykes won the pot to triple up and eliminated the player on the button.

Raymond Sykes  –  193,000  (64 bb)
