Short Stack Tushnet Hits Quads to Survive

AaronMcBride • Level 12: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

Joel Tushnet was down to just 20,000 but was able to get his stack in the middle with pocket aces. His opponent called with {j-Hearts}{10-Hearts} and the flop the came down was brutal for Tushnet.

{a-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{k-Hearts} was revealed and Tushnet's top set was behind to his opponent's straight.

But, as the turn fell the {a-Hearts} the tables erupted in shock and Tushnet took the lead once more with quads. There was a sweat on the river however as Tushnet's opponent had an out to the royal flush, but it did not come, and Tushnet survived.
