Sal Pipitone raised to 100,000 from the button, Charlie Coultas three-bet to 150,000 in the big blind, and Pipitone called.

The flop came Qs10s5h, Coultas bet 50,000, Pipitone raised to 100,000, Coulas three-bet to 150,000, Pipitone capped it at 200,000, and Coultas called.

The turn was the 7c, Coultas bet 100,000, Pipitone raised to 200,000, Coultas reraised all in for about 230,000, and Pipitone called.

Pipitone:  KdKs7s5s
Coultas:  AhQhQcJd

Coultas was ahead with a set of queens, while Pipitone had an overpair and flush draw (his bottom two pair was moot).

The river was the 4s, giving Pipitone a king-high flush to win Event 9 outright for $16,900 and his second SHRP major series trophy.

Coultas finished runner-up for $10,390.

A recap of the event will be posted later tonight.
