Boobekov Turns Quads

Chad_Holloway • Level 8: 500-1,000, 100 ante

A short-stacked Nurlan Boobekov moved all in under the gun for 12,600 and received a call from Mike Watson in the hijack. The rest of the field folded and it was off to the races.

Watson: {A-Clubs}{Q-Diamonds}
Boobekov: {9-Spades}{9-Hearts}

An ace in the window generated some excitement, but much to Boobekov's relief it was followed by a nine on the {A-Hearts}{4-Spades}{9-Diamonds} flop. Boobekov had a hammerlock on the hand, and just for good measure, the dealer burned and turned the {9-Clubs}. The meaningless {3-Diamonds} was run out on the river and Boobekov's quads gave him a double within the first ten minutes of play.
