The Hardest Beat Ever?

Not quite, but close reports from this year's World Series of Poker:
Jack Mahalingam is all-in for $5,000 and is called an opponent in late position. Mahalingam shows 8s, 8c and his opponent has 5h, 5c. The flop is 6s, 5s, 5d and his opponent flops quads. The turn is the 9s giving Mahalingam a gut-shot straight flush draw (his only way to win). The river is the 7s giving Mahalingam the straight flush and the hand.
But not a bad beat considering Mahalingam was a pre-flop favorite of 4 to 1. Still, excluding the possibility of running eights, the odds against the turn and river falling Mahalingam's way were 455 to 1.
