Nikolai Sears opened to 35,000 from under the gun, as the action folded around to Max Steinberg on the small blind. He called, as did Bob Bright on the big blind.
The flop came down and the option fell on Sears. He threw out a continuation bet of 56,000 and was called by both opponents. The brought checks all round, before the completed the board.
Steinberg paused for a moment, before sliding out a bet of 165,000. Bright thought about his decision, before making the call. Sears mucked his hand.
Steinberg then rolled over his for quad sevens, much to the surprise of Bright and the rest of the table.
“How does it feel to start off with quads?” said Danard Petit from the one seat.
“Pretty good,” joked Sears, answering for Steinberg.
