Hand #269: James Hughes raised to 260,000 and Thomas Reynolds called. The flop came {8-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} and Reynolds check-called a bet of 300,000.

The turn was the {3-Diamonds} and Reynolds led out for 900,000. Hughes thought for a couple minutes and then raised all-in for 2,780,000. The action was back on Reynolds and he thought for a moment before tossing in a chip for a call.

Hughes was out front with {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds} and Reynolds had a straight and flush draw with {j-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}. The river brought the {2-Diamonds} and Reynolds made his flush. Hughes was eliminated in second place and will take home just over $180,000 for his efforts today.
