Hand #75: Thomas Cazayous raised to 250,000 on the button, and Upeshka De Silva three-bet to 950,000 in the big blind. Cazayous called.

On the {3-Hearts}{q-Spades}{9-Hearts} flop, De Silva checked, and Cazayous bet 600,000. De Silva check-jammed for 2.805 million, and Cazayous called.

Upeshka De Silva: {a-Hearts}{k-Spades}
Thomas Cazayous: {q-Clubs}{8-Clubs}

Cazayous turned trips with the {q-Hearts}, but De Silva stayed live with a flush draw. The {8-Diamonds} river filled up Cazayous, and he now takes a massive chip lead heads up against Nicholas Howard, while De Silva will have to wait for his third WSOP bracelet.
