Nicola Ditrapani

Playing seven-handed, Josias Santos opened to 14,000 and was called by the big blind of Nicola Ditrapani. Santos started the hand with about 340,000 and Ditripani with 450,000.

The flop came {k-Spades}{6-Spades}{8-Spades}. Ditrapani checked and Santos bet 28,000. Ditrapani raised to 71,000 before Santos shoved all-in for 390,000. Ditrapani declared, "I flopped flush bro" and made the call.

Ditrapani tabled {4-Spades}{2-Spades} and was up against the {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} of Santos.

Santos could not get the help he needed as the board completed {5-Hearts}{10-Hearts} giving Ditripani a massive 800,000 chip stack and sending Santos to the rail.
