Joseph Mobley limped in from middle position and Guy Bowen three-bet to 170,000 on the button leaving just 20,000 behind. Action was on Tim Seidensticker who four-bet to 625,000 from the small blind and Yik Chiu moved all in from the big blind. Mobley folded while Bowen tossed his remaining 20,000 in the middle and Seidensticker called holding just a few more chips than Chiu.

Tim Seidensticker: {k-Spades}{k-Hearts}{10-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Guy Bowen: {9-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades}{2-Spades}
Yik Chiu: {a-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{10-Spades}

Chiu was ahead of both opponents and took a commanding lead with the nut flush draw after a {6-Spades}{9-Spades}{5-Hearts} flop.

The turn paired the board with the {5-Diamonds} and Chiu, still had some cards to dodge but was looking good with one card to go.

Unfortunately, the river was one of the cards Chiu didn't want to see as it fell the {7-Clubs} giving Seidensticker the nut-staright and a double elimination.
