In the last hand of Hold’em, Miami John Cernuto got it all in preflop from the big blind for 42,000 against Brandon Caputo in the hijack and Michael Rosenberg on the button.

The flop came 10s8s7c, Caputo checked, Rosenberg bet 12,000, and Caputo called. The turn card was the Js, and both players checked.

The river card was the 7s, putting four spades on the board, and Caputo bet 24,000. Rosenberg thought for a moment before calling, and all three players turned over their cards:

Brandon Caputo:  As10h  (ace-high flush)
Michael Rosenberg:  AhAd  (two pair, aces and sevens)
Miami John Cernuto:  QsQd  (queen-high flush)

Rosenberg hadn’t noticed that there were four spades on the board, and said he wouldn’t have called if he had seen them.

Caputo won the entire pot with his ace-high flush to eliminate Cernuto in sixth place.

Brandon Caputo  –  615,000  (26 BB)
Michael Rosenberg  –  47,000  (2 BB)
