Miltiadis Kyriakides opened with a raise to 25,000 from middle position, Jason Everett called from the button, and Keven Stammen called as well from the big blind. The flop came {3-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. Stammen checked, Kyriakides continued for 35,000, Everett folded, and Stammen called.

The {3-Spades} landed on the turn, and both players checked. The river then brought the {8-Clubs}. Stammen contemplated for a moment, then led with a bet of 84,000. Kyriakides then pushed all in and Stammen quickly called.

Stammen tabled {3-Clubs}{3-Hearts} for quads, eliciting "wows" from several at the table. Kyriakides briefly flashed his hand — {8-}{7-} for eights full — before mucking his cards. He had a broad smile on his face, though, and quickly stepped over and reached across the table to shake Stammen's hand. "Sorry, man," said Stammen, who was grinning as well. And still was several minutes later, too.
