will_shill • Level 18: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

We heard from officials that Patrick Rooney had gotten {q-}{q-} in against the {k-}{j-} of Andrew Grimason.

The hand looked to be all but dead after the {a-}{10-}{q-} flop gave Grimason a straight. The turn was a blank, but the river was the cased {q-} giving Rooney quads and keeping him alive in this tournament.
