Limit Omaha 8 or Better

Men Nguyen bet from under the gun and Erickson called to go all in for 220,000 from middle position. Barny Boatman in the small blind and Scott Abrams in the big blind also called.

The three players still with cards and a stack in front of them checked until the river where the board read {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{j-Spades}{4-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}. Nguyen bet and Boatman made the fold. Abrams pondered for a while before eventually folding.

Mark Erickson: {q-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{3-Spades}{2-Clubs}
Men Nguyen: {8-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}

Erickson turned over his cards hoping to get half the pot with the nut low. But to his amazement, his pocket queens were good enough to take the high pot leaving Erickson flabbergasted that he quadrupled up. "Put that in the record books!" yelled Erickson.
