Watson Gets Paid on Quad Aces

Mike Watson

Mike Watson looked down at {A-Diamonds}{A-Spades} under the gun and raised to 65,000. Shaun Deeb then three-bet to 155,000 from the button with {K-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}, the blinds both folded, and Watson just called, bringing about a flop of {Q-Hearts}{A-Hearts}{9-Spades}.

Watson coyly checked top set, and then just called when Deeb bet 138,000. The dealer proceeded burned and turned the {A-Clubs} to give Watson quads, and he checked to Deeb, who checked behind. When the {2-Diamonds} completed the board on the river, Watson led out for 400,000. Deeb grinned and thought about it for well over a minute before making the call.

"That's the worst call I've ever made," Deeb said after seeing Watson roll over pocket rockets.
