Yes, He Did Fold Quads

Phil Galfond tweeted the following:

Catching up with Eugene Katchalov on the break to grab a summary of the hand, he said Mikhail Smirnov did indeed fold quad eights to John Morgan. Katchalov told us that Tom Dwan had opened and received a call from Smirnov and Morgan before the {J-Spades}{8-Clubs}{7-Spades} fell. Dwan checked and Smirnov bet. Morgan called and Dwan folded.

The turn was the {8-Spades} and Smirnov bet 200,000. Overhearing a conversation from Smirnov, he said Morgan called within five seconds and looked extremely excited about the hand.

The river completed the board with the {K-Spades} and Smirnov bet 700,000. Morgan raised all in for 3.4 million total and Smirnov tank-folded the {8-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} face up for all to see.
