Louis Helm

Hand #159: Louis Helm called from the button, Upeshka De Silva raised to 200,000 from the big blind, and Helm moved all-in for 1,950,000. De Silva asked, "Do you want me to call you?" and went into the tank for about 30 seconds. "You seem strong for some reason," he said. Ultimately, De Silva called, and the two players tabled their hands.

De Silva: {A-Spades}{J-Clubs}
Helm: {A-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}

De Silva had the lead and Helm needed to improve to double up. The board ran out {K-Spades}{K-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}{5-Spades}{J-Hearts}, and De Silva won the pot with a pair of jacks to eliminate Helm and take the title.
