David Shaw opened to 250,000 from the cutoff and Joseph Pham moved all in on the button for around 800,000. Action folded back to Shaw who quickly made the call to put Pham at risk and the cards were tabled.
Joseph Pham: [AhKs]
David Shaw: [Kh10h]
Pham was a favorite going into this battle, but the flop of [KcJh9h] was not ideal for him as it gave Shaw a ton of straight and flush outs.
And just like that, the [Qh] came down on the turn to give Shaw a straight flush and left Pham high and dry with zero outs as the table went nuts.
The board completed with a meaningless [Ac] on the river and Pham was eliminated in dramatic fashion to take home 7th place money.
