Nate Silver raised on the button and John Monnette called from the big blind. The flop came {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{7-Clubs} and Monnette checked to Silver who bet. Monnette check-raised which allowed Silver to three-bet. Monnette just called and the {k-Spades} landed on the turn.

Monnette led out with a bet and Silver raised. Monnette re-raised and Silver found himself all in for 390,000 on the turn.

Nate Silver: {q-Clubs}{10-Spades}
John Monnette: {k-Clubs}{8-Hearts}

Monnette held two pair and the larger of the two flush draws. Silver had just two outs in the deck and the {6-Diamonds} on the river was not one of them. Monnette held on for the win and Silver was forced to settle for second place.
