Van Auken Takes Chip Lead With Quads

• Level 30: 12,000-24,000, 3,000 ante

Four players committed 48,000 to the middle after a raise and three calls. The flop came the {2-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{9-Clubs}. Shawn "loanmonster" Silber bet 106,500, Matthew "BraceletHUNT" Hunt called. Eric "8Bracelets" Van Auken jammed all in over the top for 867,284, Silver folded and Hunt called.

Van Auken had the set with the {2-Hearts}{2-Clubs} while Hunt had the {j-Clubs}{j-Spades} overpair.

The turn ended it right there as the {2-Spades} binked off to give Van Auken quads and the chip lead of the tournament while Hunt was badly damaged.
