Martinez Spikes Quads to Stay Alive

Alex Marinez moved all in preflop for his last 15,000 but then Trung Pham shoved over the top for much more. The rest of the table got out of the way and the cards were tabled.

Alex Martinez: [JhJs]

Trung Pham: [Ad5d]

The flop came out [3cJd2c] to put Martinez in good shape with top set.

"He can still lose, you know," Pham joked to the table as he still had a gutshot straight draw and possible backdoor flush draw.

All of those outs were put to bed, however, as the [Jc] smacked down on the turn to give Martinez quads, which left Pham drawing stone dead. The board completed with the [Ac] to secure Martinez's victory for a successful double-up.

Alex Martinez: 55,000

Trung Pham: 190,000
