On the three-way flop of {A-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{2-Hearts}, the fireworks started over on table 123 and three players got their stacks in with Andreas Walnum holding the far biggest stack of them. Zoltan Gal tabled his cards and the dealer suddenly mucked them before other players at the table spoke up and confirmed what Gal had . His cards were retrieved out of the muck and the three-way showdown came as follows:

Nikolaos Lampropulos: {J-Spades}{9-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Zoltan Gal: {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{10-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}
Andreas Walnum: {K-Hearts}{4-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{2-Spades}

The magic {A-Diamonds} turn gave Gal a superior full house and he only needed to dodge the case deuce for quads of Walnum. A blank {J-Diamonds} came on the river and Gal knocked out Lampropulos while doubling his stack of 19,975 through Walnum.
