Action folded to Andrew Brown in the small blind and he limped. Steven Silverman was in the big blind and opted to exercise his option with a raise to 90,000, which Brown called. When the flop fell and Brown checked, Silverman came out with a bet of 125,000. Brown immediately announced a pot-sized raise, and Silverman called off for right around 540,000.
Brown had flopped a pair of eights with a flush draw, while Silverman held a pair of queens, a wrap, and an inferior flush draw. With draws abound, it was a bit surprising that it'd be the on the turn that would give Brown the lead. Even so, Silverman still had plenty of outs to stay alive on the river. Unfortunately for him, the was not one of them.
