Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Quads for Cunningham

Shamus • Nível 20: 6,000-12,000, 2,000 ante
Allen Cunningham

We had a big hand on the main feature table just prior to the first break of the day involving Allen Cunningham and Patrick Coughlin.

It began with Coughlin opening for 24,000 from early position, Cunningham calling from the button, and Daniel Negreanu calling as well from the big blind. The flop came {2-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{K-Spades}. Negreanu checked, Coughlin bet 38,000, Cunningham called, and Negreanu folded.

The turn brought the {2-Clubs}. Coughlin bet 95,000 this time, and Cunningham called again.

The river (a blank, as it would turn out) brought another bet from Coughlin followed by an all-in shove by Cunningham for 304,000. Coughlin quickly called, showing {9-Hearts}{9-Spades} for a full house. But Cunningham had {2-Diamonds}{2-Spades} for quads, and claimed the huge pot.

Cunningham returns from the break to a stack of 960,000, while Coughlin has 267,000.
