The flop was showing {8-Hearts}{7-Spades}{3-Spades}, Phil Hellmuth and Stephen Chidwick both had all over their chips in the middle. Chris Vitch called both all in and the three turned over their hands.

Stephen Chidwick: {a-Spades}{k-Spades}{q-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}
Chris Vitch: {9-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{7-Hearts}{6-Clubs}
Phil Hellmuth: {a-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{q-Clubs}{9-Spades}

The {10-Spades} fell on the turn, giving Chidwick the lead with his flush and the {2-Hearts} on the river changed nothing. Chidwick scooped the pot, elimating Hellmuth from the tournament and securing a double through Vitch.
