"I'm not going to beat a flopped straight."

Those were the last words of Todd Bergeth, who tangled with MSPT champ Max Havlish and discovered the bad news on the turn.

There was already a good amount in the middle and a board reading {8-Diamonds}{6-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{k-Clubs} when Bergeth bluffed it and was called by Havlish, who tabled the nuts.

Todd Bergeth: {a-Hearts}{j-Spades}
Max Havlish: {10-Clubs}{9-Clubs}

Indeed, Havlish had flopped the straight and Bergeth was drawing dead headed to the {9-Hearts} river.
