Buchman: {k-Spades}{q-Spades} / {4-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades} / {10-Hearts}
Isaia: {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts} / {8-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{10-Spades} / {q-Clubs}

Wow... Eric Buchman was either one or two in chips for the entire day, including after the dinner break. But in just over 50 minutes, Buchman has gone from chip leader to out. Buchman got all of his chips in on fifth street with king high, and was in bad shape against Isaia's jacks and straight draw. Isaia caught that straight on sixth street, but Buchman found a flush draw heading into seventh street. The final card was the {10-Hearts}, and just like that we are heads up.
