Mike Leah raised to 350,000 in the hijack and Richard Lyndaker called all in for 115,000 from the cutoff, Jerry Wong called from the big blind. On the {Q-Spades}{6-Spades}{4-Hearts} flop, Wong moved all in and Leah checked his cards again, then put in calling chips to create a three-way all-in situation.

Richard Lyndaker: {9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}
Jerry Wong: {A-Spades}{K-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Mike Leah: {9-Hearts}{9-Spades}{7-Clubs}{3-Spades}

Lyndaker had a gutshot but was in dire shape nonetheless against two opponents, while Wong had the nut flush draw against Leah's pair, gutshot, and inferior flush draw. The {10-Spades} turn locked up the hand for Wong to ensure the elimination of Lyndaker, and the meaningless {2-Clubs} fell on the river. Lyndaker was eliminated in 9th place for $67,210 and Wong doubled through Leah for 665,000.

"You had no pair, nothing? I knew I had you beat," Leah joked while paying off Wong.
