Just before break we saw Thomas Beckstead collecting a huge pot. Beckstead was holding on a board of for a straight flush. He was able to relay the action to us.
Beckstead told us that he opened and got three-bet by a player in position. Beckstead then four-bet and he was flatted by the player in position.
The flop came down and Beckstead continued with a bet for 22,500 which he said was about half the pot. The player flatted again. On the turn, Beckstead checked to the player, who bet out 29,000 which was "small" relative to the pot according to Beckstead. He called the bet. On the river, the players got all the money in. The other player was holding for the nut flush, with a pair of tens on the turn, so Beckstead was only drawing to a three to win the hand. Fortunately for him, he hit his gin card which gave both players a monster hand.
Beckstead moved to 448,000 after the hand which put him close to the top of the chip counts.
