Yehuda Buchalter opened on the button and was three-bet by Scott Baumstein in the small blind. Khamar Xaythavone then four-bet from the big blind. Baumstein called for the remainder of his chips, and Buchalter called as well.

The flop came {k-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{q-Spades}, Xaythavone continuation bet, and Buchalter called.

Buchalter then led out on the {j-Spades} turn and Xaythavone called.

Both players checked the river. Baumstein revealed {a-Spades}{8-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Clubs} for the nut flush and scooped the main. Buchalter held {10-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{3-Clubs} for a straight and took down the side pot as Xaythavone mucked.
