Allen Kerlin recounted one of the hands that led to Tim Reilly's demise.

Tim Reilly min-raised in middle position and Allen Kerlin called in the hijack.

The flop came {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} and Kerlin called a bet. The turn was the {10-Spades} and both players checked to the {j-Clubs} river. On the river, Reilly check-jammed after Kerlin made a 90,000 bet and Kerlin called for his remaining 300,000 stack.

Reilly asked if he had jack-ten but instead, Kerlin flipped over the {8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} for a flopped straight flush while Reilly mucked.
