Quads vs. Full House vs. Overpair

2011 WSOP November Niner Badih Bounahra opened to 400 in early position, Pete Akery called in middle position, and Nick Maimone three-bet to 1,200 from the blinds. Bounahra and Akery both called. The flop fell {8-Spades}{k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}, and without hesitation, Maimone led out for 2,200. Bounahra and Akery both called.

The turn was the {8-Diamonds}, and Maimone tanked for 20 seconds or so. Finally, he grabbed a single blue T5,000 chip, and tossed it forward. Bounahra and Akery both called.

The {9-Hearts} completed the board, and Maimone slowed down, checking to Bounahra. He fired 7,600, Akery moved all in for effectively 20,000 or so, and Maimone grimaced before folding. Bounahra made the call, putting himself at risk.

Akery flipped over {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} for quad eights, and Bounahra shook his head, turning over {10-Spades}{10-Clubs} for a full house.

"I folded aces," Maimone announced after the hand.

Akery is up to 65,000 chips, Maimone is down to 21,000, and Bounahra is out.
