With the board reading Tclub7spade5spade and about 30,000 in the pot, Abe Korotki is all in for roughly 73,000. Matt Giannetti tanks for about 30 seconds before he calls.

Korotki: Jspade3spade
Gianetti: 7heart5heart

Korotki stands up and when the 6spade falls on the turn to give him a flush, he screams out a deafening "YES!!!! YES!!!"

The 2heart river is no help to Giannetti, giving Korotki the double up.
