George Danzer had won a couple of pots to push back in front, then came a hand in which Oleksii Kovalchuk raised from the button, Danzer called, and the flop came {3-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}. Danzer checked, Kovalchuk bet, Danzer raised, and Kovalchuk called. The turn was the {Q-Clubs}, and once more Danzer check-raised Kovalchuk, with the Ukrainian calling again.

The river brought the {J-Diamonds} and a bet from Kovalchuk, and with a bit of a wary look Danzer called. Kovalchuk quickly turned over {A-Diamonds}{7-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}, separating out those two diamonds to show he'd made the nut flush, and Danzer folded.
