John Pappas

We didn’t see the preflop action but we heard the post-flop noise. We hustled over to see Corey Major all in for 14,000 against John Pappas with his QsQh dominating TsTd.

The table erupted when the dealer spread the QdThTc flop. Major hit a full house, Pappas had the old flopped quads, and Major couldn’t find a one-out win on the 3h turn or 6h river. Major took it in stride and Pappas moved up to 41,000.

“Man, he took that really well,” Pappas commented about Major.
