"I Have Quads"

Level 15 : 1,500-3,000, 0 ante

We missed the preflop action, but we do know that Nick Kallenbach got his short stack all in while Greg Merson and Allan Le created a side pot.

When the flop came down {7-Spades}{j-Diamonds}{a-Diamonds}, Merson bet the pot and Le shook his head before folding.

"I have quads," Merson joked and tabled his hand — {a-Hearts}{a-Spades}{a-Clubs}{9-Spades}. If he could use three cards from his hand he would have had quads, but as it stood he found the case ace to make top set. Merson took down the side pot, but there was still 40,000 or so in the main. Kallenbach tabled the {k-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{q-Hearts}{2-Hearts} for a flush draw, and he actually hit it on the {Q-Diamonds} turn.

Kallenbach just needed to avoid the board pairing on the river to more than triple, which he did when the {9-Diamonds} peeled off.
