In a four-way pot, the flop read {k-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{6-Spades} when Ben Yu checked from the small blind, followed by the three other players, including Calvin Anderson. The turn {q-Diamonds} was also checked.

The river fell a {2-Clubs} and after a new round of checked, Yu showed {9-Clubs}{6-Clubs} for a pair of sixes, which was enough to make his opponents muck.
