Boutin Flops Flush to Leave Graham Short

Burt Boutin

Burt Boutin had his last 560,000 chips committed to the pot and was about to reveal hands with Ruth Graham.

Burt Boutin: {a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}
Ruth Graham: {a-Diamonds}{k-Spades}

Graham was in a dominating spot but it was all over as the dealer spread the {8-Clubs}{7-Clubs}{2-Clubs} flop to give Boutin a flush as he celebrated his good fortune. The meaningless {5-Hearts} and {k-Hearts} completed the board and left Graham with a short stack.
