Event #12: $1,500 Triple Chance No-Limit Hold’em

Schwartz Sinks Set of Sixes With Quads on Turn

• Nivo 10: 400-800, 100 ante
Luke Schwartz

While making our rounds through the tournament area, we heard one player scream in agony and we rushed over to catch the carnage. Apparently, after the flop fell {6-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}, Luke Schwartz and the screamer got all the chips in the middle.

Schwartz: {2-Clubs}{2-Spades}
Opponent: {6-Spades}{6-Hearts}

Both players had flopped sets and Schwartz was drawing nearly dead, with exactly one out left in the deck that could save him.

When the dealer peeled the {2-Diamonds} on the turn, our unnamed opponent shouted in disbelief and jumped up from his seat screaming "No! No way!" His over set had been crushed by the quad deuces of Schwartz and now it was he was the one begging the dealer for a one-out miracle.

River: {J-Clubs}

Schwartz had completed the comeback from 96% underdog to winner and grew his stack to 43,000 chips in one of the last hands of the night. To add insult to injury, the unnamed player was dealt one last hand before the players bagged their chips. His holding? You guessed it, pocket sixes. Poker folks, you have to love it.
