Steinberg: {a-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
Wjuniski: {8-Diamonds}{7-Spades}

The flop came down {6-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{5-Hearts}. Wjuniski would need a straight card or a seven to stay alive. His contingency of railbirds started shouting for a four. Wjuniski had the Brazilian flag draped around his shoulders waiting for his fate.

The turn brought the {7-Diamonds} and the rail went wild.

The river was the {q-Hearts} and Wjuniski raked in his chips and his followers treated us to a song and dance. It feels like the World Cup in here.
