Bord Flops Quads; Eliminates Pierre Garand

[user265690] • Level 13: 100,000-200,000, 30,000 ante

Nice flop James!

The James in question was James Bord, he intended to raise but threw out just a single 500,000 chip and it went as a limp. No worries as Pierre Garand, who was in position, did the raising for him by making it 525,000 to play and when it folded back to Bord he called.

The flop fell {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}{A-Hearts} which elicited a few raised eyebrows and chatter at the table. There was no action though as it checked through to the {8-Clubs} turn. Bord came out firing, betting 400,000, Garand raised to 1,200,000 and Bord tanked before jamming. He had Garand covered, the Canadian had about 2,150,000 back and faced with a tournament-defining decision he understandably took his time. A couple of minutes passed and he decided that all-in was the play.

Bord showed {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} for quads and Garand was drawing dead with {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}. The {J-Spades} completed the board and Garand shook hands with his opponents and wished them luck before heading on his way.
