Seiver Runs into Obrestad's Quads

MarcC • Level 7: 250-500, 50 ante

After a few minutes of unusually quiet deliberation from Scott Seiver he removed one side of his headphones, looked at Annette Obrestad (his opponent in the hand), and said, "Pretty bad spot for me. You could have pocket queens." He carried on speaking in an inaudible mutter before he came to a decision that he regretted.

Going back a couple of streets and the action was three-way to a {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{q-Hearts} flop. Seiver bet 2,700 from mid position and was called by Obrested on the button and one other player. The turn came as the {j-Hearts} and Seiver bet 2,700 to be called by Obrestad only.

The board completed with the {a-Clubs} and Seiver reached and bet 9,200 of his 30,000-stack. His Norwegian opponent paused and then raised to 21,000. when called, she opened {j-Clubs}{9-Spades} for quads! Seiver almost expected it and looked to the skies.
