Kevin Gerhart opened to 500,000 on the button and Matthew Kaplan defended from the big blind after doubling through Gerhart a few hands earlier.

Gerhart continued with a bet of 750,000 on the flop of {10-Spades}{9-Spades}{q-Diamonds} and Kaplan check-raised all-in. Gerhart went into the tank before calling.

Matthew Kaplan: {j-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{3-Spades}
Kevin Gerhart: {8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{3-Clubs}

Kaplan was in the lead with a pair and straight draw while Gerhart had the better spade draw. The board ran out {q-Clubs}{j-Spades} to give Gerhart the winning hand with a flush and send Kaplan home in third place.

"You're supposed to fold that hand, buddy," Kaplan said after shaking his opponent's hand.
