Bryce Yockey: {x-}{x-} / {5-Hearts}{j-Spades}{5-Spades}{7-Hearts} / {x-}
John Esposito: {x-}{x-} / {q-Clubs}{a-Spades}{4-Clubs} - folded
Josh Arieh: {x-}{x-} / {9-Clubs}{j-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{4-Hearts} / {x-}

Bryce Yockey brought it in with the {5-Hearts}, John Esposito completed, Josh Arieh called, and Yockey called. Esposito bet fourth street, and both of his opponents called again. Yockey took the lead on fifth street and bet, which chased out Esposito. Arieh raised, prompting Yockey to peek back at his hole cards before calling. Yockey checked sixth street and Arieh bet. Yockey spent a minute in the tank before calling.

Seventh street was checked through, and Yockey showed {a-Spades}{k-Clubs}{k-Hearts} for kings up. Arieh showed {6-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} for three sixes, however, and Arieh took down the pot.
