Hellmuth completed, Spinks called, and then Hellmuth led out on fourth street. Spinks called. Spinks took the lead on fifth, and led out. Hellmuth called. On sixth, Spinks opted to check-call a bet, and then he checked in the dark heading to seventh. Hellmuth checked behind after sweating his down card.

"I have an eight," Hellmuth announced.

"Seventy-five," Spinks told him, tabling {a-}{7-}{5-}.

"You paired your seven and then got there," Hellmuth said unhappily.

"I've always waited for this moment," Spinks replied, grinning from ear to ear.

Ted Forrest began laughing historically. "Relish it," he told Spinks. "You're going to here some more."

Hellmuth was still grumbling when we left the table, and Spinks was still cheesing.
