Brunson Runs into Straight Flush

Doyle Brunson ran into the stone nuts.

Three players had seen a flop of {8-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{7-Clubs}, and the player under the gun bet 3,000 when checked to. Both the small blind and Doyle Brunson in the big blind called. The turn was a {6-Hearts}, and the small blind bet out 4,000. Both of his opponents called. A {j-Clubs} hit the river, and the small blind checked. Brunson tossed out 12,000, and the under-the-gun player immediately moved all in for just a few thousand more. Brunson called after the small blind folded.

Brunson showed {q-Spades}{9-Hearts} for a queen high-straight.

"Straight flush," Brunson's opponent said excitedly, tabling {9-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for the absolute nuts. He took down the pot.
