Adam Friedman tried to ride out his rush and raised to 50,000 before the flop holding the button. Aaron Steury and a short-stacked David Baker made the call.
Steury checked and Baker threw his last 25,000 into the middle. Friedman continued his aggressive line, raising it to 50,000 and Steury three-bet, making it 75,000 to go in an effort to isolate the all-in player. Friedman could smell the blood in the water as well and made the call, trying to combine forces and eliminate Baker.
The turn card came and Steury led out with a bet of 50,000, which Friedman called. After the fell on the river, the action repeated itself and we were headed for a showdown. Friedman tabled the for trip sevens and an ace kicker, but found himself crushed by the for quad queens held by Steury.
Baker saw the bad news and mucked his cards face down, exiting the final table area with a seventh-place finish, which was good for a $32,150 payday.
