With the board showing Spade 6Club 5Spade 4Heart 5, Brandon Guzman moves all in from the small blind, and Jeremy Joseph quickly calls all in from the cutoff for about 600,000.

Thinking he is beat, Guzman says, “Nice hand. I have a straight.”

Joseph pauses for a moment and then asks, “You have a straight?”
