Nick Petrangelo

Mikalai Vaskaboinikau raised to 120,000 from under the gun and Nick Petrangelo called from the big blind.

The flop came {Q-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{2-Hearts} and Petrangelo checked. Vaskaboinikau bet 150,000 and Petrangelo check-raised to 400,000. Vaskaboinikau jammed and Petrangelo called to put himself at risk.

Vaskaboinikau: {A-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Petrangelo: {K-Hearts}{10-Hearts}

Both players had flopped flush draws but Vaskaboinikau held the nut-flush draw while Petrangelo had additional outs in the form of a gutshot. The {5-Spades} on the turn was no help to either player. The {5-Hearts} river completed the flush, securing the pot for Vaskaboinikau and ending Petrangelo's tournament.
