Dan Zack raised from the cutoff and Ryan Hughes defended his big blind. Hughes check-called a bet of 50,000 on the {a-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} flop as the players went heads-up to the turn.

Both players checked the {10-Diamonds}, then Hughes led out for 200,000 on the {k-Spades} river. Zack paused for a moment then announced he was all in.

Hughes went into the tank for several minutes, getting up off his seat and playing with his chips as he considered the call. He eventually slid his stack forward, only to find out Zack had turned a flush with {k-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}.

The Day 2 chip leader was knocked out in sixth place, while Zack took over the tournament chip lead.
