Tboss • Level 7: 400-800, 800 ante
Upeshka De Silva

On a flop of {a-Spades}{10-Clubs}{3-Spades} the action checked to Upeshka De Silva who put in a bet before his opponent raised enough to cover his stack. De Silva took a moment before calling off his 19,700 and saying, "I hope you have four-five of spades or something."

Upeshka De Silva: {k-Spades}{j-Spades}
Opponent: {q-Spades}{9-Spades}

Both players had flopped a flush draw but De Silva was in the lead with the king-high. The board completed with the {7-Hearts} on the turn and the {a-Diamonds} on the river for neither player to improve and De Silva's high card got him the double up.
