We had barely made it back to the table after the elimination of Taner Durst when another big pot was brewing. The board showed {7-Clubs} {5-Diamonds} {6-Spades} {4-Spades}. Sergey Ershou bet 20,000, then called after Adam Peck moved all in.

Ershou: {3-Hearts} {5-Hearts}
Peck: {K-Diamonds} {8-Spades}

It took Ershou about five seconds to realize that his small straight was second-best to Peck's bigger straight. He summed up the realization with one quiet word.

"Sh*t."

The river blanked {10-Diamonds}. When the stacks were counted down, Peck had Ershou covered.

"Sh*t. I made mistake," said Ershou. He was whisked away to the cage to collect his AU$12,900 prize money. The two remaining players then requested a short bathroom break.
