Young Phan: {x-}{x-} / {8-Spades}{5-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Diamonds} / {x-}
Raul Paez: {x-}{x-} / {5-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{9-Hearts} / {x-}
Mike Leah: {x-}{x-} / {a-Clubs}{3-Hearts}{2-Spades}{q-Diamonds} / {x-}

Leah checked on fourth street, Phan tossed out a bet, and both Paez and Leah called. On fifth, all of the money went in. Paez bet, Leah called, Phan raised, Paez moved all in for exactly three bets, Leah called, and Phan moved all in for 8,000. Leah called.

Phan: {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
Paez: {7-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Leah: {k-Hearts}{7-Diamonds}

Paez ripped of a straight on sixth when he was dealt the {9-Hearts}, and held when Phan ({j-Clubs}) and Leah ({j-Diamonds}) bricked on seventh.

Phan was crippled down to 13,000 chips, and yelled at himself after the hand.

"Bad play, Chinamen!" he yelled at himself. "But I'm not Chinese, though."
