It looked like Jason Gallagher’s day was going to come to an abrupt end, when he got his final chips in preflop holding [Ah][Kh]. Unfortunately for him, Bret Gross had woken up with [As][Ac], and quickly put him at risk. Gallagher would catch one king in the window, and another one came after on the flop of [Ks][Js][Kd].
Amazingly, the [Kc] came on the turn to give Gallagher quads, and as it turned out, he would need it, as another one outer came on the river, the [Ad].
Somehow, aces over kings was still no good, as Gallagher had quad kings to double up to over 4,500,000, while Gross is stung but still in with nearly five million.
