Conrad De Armas

The {7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{3-Hearts} was on the board with about 18,000 in the pot when Chris Hunichen check-called a bet of 12,000 from Conrad De Armas.

The river peeled the {3-Clubs} and Hunichen checked again. De Armas quickly fired 75,000.

Hunichen went deep into the tank.

"Damn that was a big bet," said Hunichen. "I have a really good hand man."

Hunichen eventually tossed in a call and he saw the bad news as De Armas tabled {q-Hearts}{q-Spades} for a full house.

"You had a flush huh," asked tablemate Kyle Arora to Hunichen?

"Yea," said Hunichen.

With that pot, De Armas surges towards the top of the leaderboard as the night comes to a close.
