Event 5: Thompson’s Royal Busts Quads

$155 No Limit Hold’em

Level 8: 300/600/75


Ben Thompson (pictured) was facing an all in on the river with the board reading QcTc6cTdKc.

“I got to call you,” said Thompson. “You got a full house?”

Thompson’s opponent tables TsTh, good for quad tens.

“Quads huh,” said Thompson. “I only got the nut flush.”

Thompson tabled AcJc and thought that he had lost the pot. The dealer and the table informed him that he had a royal flush and he scooped the pot.

If this hand took place in a cash game, they would have hit the $50,000 bad beat jackpot, but Thompson will have to settle for the pot. He is sitting with 34,000.
