Chop Chop


Robert Varkonyi and an opponent on his direct right were all in preflop at our feature table moments ago. The play paused so the cameras could catch up, but once they were there it was go time:

Varkonyi: {a-Hearts}{10-Clubs}
Opponent: {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}

"You watch he'll get four tens," Varkonyi's opponent predicted. "Then he'll get the jerky."

Four tens do not get you jerky and Varkonyi could not make quads once the flop fell {4-Diamonds}{4-Spades}{4-Hearts}. He could chop though, and that possibility became a reality with the {q-Clubs} on the turn. The river brought a meaningless {6-Hearts}, and the cameras dispersed due to the anticlimactic nature of the pot.
