Paul checks once more and watches as Obst reaches for his chips, cuts out another bet, and pushes in 300,000 in chips. Paul sits back in his chair and deliberates over his decision before tossing in a chip to signify a call.

Obst then turns over his    for a flush, which takes down the pot, as Paul tosses his cards into the muck.
