Guy Hayun raised to 100,000 from the hijack, Phil Souki three-bet to 275,000 from the cutoff and Hayun called.

The flop was 8d9s7s, Hayun led for 650,000, Souki raised all in for roughly 2,000,000 and Hayun called with 7h6h for a pair of sevens with a straight draw. Souki tabled As5s for a flush draw with a straight draw, making it basically even with two cards to come.

The 2s turn locked it up for Souki with an ace-high flush, rendering the 10h river moot.

Down to 25,000, Hayun busted the following hand.

Phil Souki  –  4,650,000  (116 bb)
Guy Hayun  –  Eliminated in 19th Place  ($3,985)
