Brooks Runs Second Nuts Into the Nuts

We came across this hand with a board reading {3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}. From what we could piece together, it seemed the big blind had out out a bet, the amount of which we're not sure, and Brooks raised to 5,700. The big blind then three-bet to 18,500, about half of Brooks' stack.

The LAPC champ asked for a count on his opponent, as if he were pondering a raise. In the end, Brooks splashed in a call, only to shake his head when the cards were revealed.

Brooks: {A-Spades}{5-Spades}
Opponent: {5-Clubs}{6-Clubs}

Brooks had rivered a wheel, but his opponent held the superior six-high straight. Brooks is down to 11,600.
