On a flop of KCQd4c John Ripstra and Manny Minaya are all in.

Ripstra: AdKh
Minaya: AcKs

Both players have top pair, top kicker and are staring at a chop pot. But the turn and river are disasters for Ripstra.

Turn: Jc

River: 2c

Running clubs gives Minaya the winning flush as he picks up more than 200k and is now the chip leader with 750k.

Ripstra is out in 9th place, good for $967.
