Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship

Jack Kashishian

Two quads at the same table by two different gentlemen.

The first at the hand of Jack Kashishian (Edgewater, NJ).

Flop came 8-7-3 rainbow. Jack raised 4200 causing Opponent to jam.

Of course Kashishian called tabling 8-7 off suit. Jack needed help, up against pocket Aces of Opponent.

Then the miracle runner, runner, fell 7 - 7 - giving Jack Quads for the knock-out blow.

"And you can quote me...I'm gonna win this tournament" said Kashishian.

The second round of quads were gifted to Steve Russell (Coolville, OH) who saw pocket Queens improve to four Queens on the flop.

Steve slowed down and let an Opponent catch a flush on the river.

Wow, there really is a town called Coolville - I'd love to live there.

Level 5: Blinds 100/200 with 25 antes.
