That's So Sick, Bro

Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship  

Jack Schanbacher opened for 67k, Tom Hu raised to 235k, then LJ Sande tanked for several minutes, eventually opting to fold.  When action got back to Jack, he shoved all-in for 494k total.  Tom called, showing pocket 6s.  Jack held AK off and it was race-time. 

LJ was already wishing he had not folded his pocket 8s.  Then the flop came A 8 8 and LJ would have flopped quads!  As it stood, Jack paired his Ace to take the lead.  The last two cards came 4 T and Jack doubled up to ~1.1 million.
