Picking up the action on the {K-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} flop, Paul Phua fired a bet of 50,000, and Tobias Reinkemeier made the call in position to see the {9-Diamonds} land on the turn. Phua bet again, and this time he made it 150,000 to go. Reinkemeier took his time, then called.

On the river, the {8-Clubs} landed. Phua shipped all in for right about 320,000, and Reinkemeier snapped him off.

"Straight?" asked Phua right away.

"Yep," Reinkemeier said as he nodded.

Phua showed the {K-Hearts}{4-Clubs} for two pair, but Reinkemeier's {J-Spades}{10-Diamonds} for the straight was the winning hand. Reinkemeier had Phua covered and that wrapped up the night's play as the level came to an end immediately after.
