Quads Will Do it For Fiore


Ajay Gnanasambanthan has just felt the wrath of quads, seeing his tournament come to an end in a three-way all in situation. The hand involved Kyle Bowker and Stefano Fiore, with Bowker having both his opponents covered. Gnanasambanthan was all in for 365,000 and Fiore all in for 142,000. This is how the hands looked before the dealer spread out five cards on the felt.

Gnanasambanthan: {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}
Fiore: {9-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}
Bowker: {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}

Bowker had a strong enough hand to perhaps eliminate two players, while Gnanasambanthan was looking good to triple up. However, the {j-Spades}{9-Spades}{2-Hearts}{k-Spades}{9-Clubs} board would see Fiore double up his short stack, while Bowker would send Gnanasambanthan to the rail.
