Event #62: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Quads for a Double Up

A short-stacked Aaron O'Rourke put the last of his chips in the middle preflop against Michael Stembera. O'Rourke showed {a-}{6-}, but Stembera turned over {a-}{k-}, and O'Rourke would need help. That's exactly what he got on the flop, as the dealer spread {6-}{6-}{6-}, giving O'Rourke quads and leaving Stembera drawing dead. The meaningless turn and river were the {5-Hearts} and the {3-Diamonds}, and O'Rourke doubled up.

He continued building on the next hand, taking down the pot with a preflop three-bet and building his stack up to 24,000.
