On a raised pot, the flop read {a-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{2-Spades} when Juha Helppi check-raised a bet from Mike Lancaster, who made the call.

The turn was the {4-Spades} and Helppi led out with a bet. Lancaster raised and Helppi opted to three-bet. Lancaster quickly called.

The river fell a {6-Hearts} and Helppi checked. Lancaster thought about his move for a minute and bet before facing a raise from Helppi. Lancaster tanked for a minute and made the call, saying "I'm not good enough to fold that".

Helppi tabled {5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for a straight while Lancaster showed {a-Hearts}{4-Clubs} before sending his cards into the muck.
