Richard Gayler completed the small blind to 12,000, and James Hurley checked his option in the big blind.

The flop came Kd9d6h, Gayler checked, Hurley bet the pot, and Gayler check-raised all in. Hurley called, and they turned over their cards.

Richard Gayler:  Qh7d5d5c  (flush draw, gutshot straight draw)
James Hurley:  Kc10c7c6c  (two pair, kings and sixes)

The turn card was the 3s, the river card was the 8d, and Gayler rivered a diamond straight to win the pot and eliminate Hurley in fourth place.
