Thanh Bui's run is at a peak following his elimination of Derrick Contreras (pictured). Bui has found a way to win in all types of scenarios and pulled a new trick out of his hat to send Contreras to the rail. 

Contreras raised in the cutoff and Bui called out of the small blind. Bui checked the 653♣ flop and Contreras bet 125,000. Bui raised to 300,000 and Contreras moved all-in for about 700,000 total. Bui snap-called with 7♣4♣ and had Contreras A6♣ nearly dead. The turn bricked and Bui added another bounty and is playing 5,105,000.
