Maria Ho has finally taken a hit to her stack after playing a hug pot with the other player at the table who had chips to play with, Robert Campbell.
The action was played out with Ho leading most of the way until Campbell threw in a check-raise on fourth street. More bets were exchanged on fifth and sixth street as the pot continued to build
With the pot already one of the biggest of the night, Campbell then checked seventh and Ho bet. Campbell made the call.
Ho announced she had three-aces, having in the hole.
Campbell then turned over his hole cards to reveal he had . Quad threes were good enough to take the chip lead and with no low qualifiers it was a scoop for Campbell. But it was after the hand that all the excitement occured with the sleepy table pepping up to talk about the hand for the next few minutes.
No one could understand the check-call with quads, all the players coming up with theories as to why it occured, while Ho was also licking her wounds as Campbell had caught the runner-runner to take down the pot.
After some time Campbell came out and admitted he thought he had a small full house and was worried that Ho had a bigger full house.
It really is getting late.
Campbell now has the chip-lead with 175,000 while Ho moves down to 125,000.
