Quads? Quads are good!
Auris Stanevicius from Lithuania just hit the jackpot at Table 16.
He found Q♦ Q♠ on the button and opened up to 9k after it was folded to him. The Swede Karl Ellingsson called in the big blind and the flop gave Stanevicius a set: K♣ Q♣ 3♥.
After his opponent checked Stanevicius bet 6k only to see Ellingsson come over the top with a raise to 17k. The young player from Lithuania called.
Turn: Q♥. Quads! And Ellingsson kept betting. Now he fired 22k and Stanevicius just called.
River: T♣. Ellingsson fired a last time, this time slightly more than 40k, to put Stanevicius all-in. Since he still had the nuts he called immediately.
After seeing his hand Ellingsson knocked on the table, turned over T♠ 4♦ for a stone-cold bluff and handed over most of his chips.
Stanevicius, meanwhile, is up to over 190k now.
