Jason Cohen and Somar Al-Darwich were heads up on a flop of {10-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{2-Spades}, and after a series of bets, Cohen was all in for 634,000. Al-Darwich called.

Cohen: {9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Al-Darwich: {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

Al-Darwich flopped a set of eights, but Cohen held a straight flush draw.

"Anyone fold a diamond?" Al-Darwich asked his tablemates, who remained silent. "Prettiest card in the deck. Ace of spades."

The turn card was one of the prettiest cards in the deck for Cohen, because the {j-Diamonds} gave him an unbeatable straight flush. Stunned, Al-Darwich threw his hands on his head and walked away from the table as the meaningless {4-Clubs} completed the board. Cohen doubled to 1.46 million chips, while Al-Darwich fell to 1.278 million.
