Quads Vs. Quads Sends Liu Home Approaching Bubble

Chang Liu

(Hand took place 30 minutes ago and we are reporting as it appears on the PokerGO livestream)

Vito Distefano opened to 11,500 with    and Omer Gabay flatted with   , as did William Benson with   , Ugur Ozgur Secilmis with    and Chang Liu with   .

The five-player flop came out    , giving Liu quads and Secilmis a brutal cooler. Everybody checked the flop and then Secilmis hit the absolute dream card on the turn:  . Once again, they all checked it and saw the   on the river.

Secilmis then bet out 55,000 and then Liu raised to 225,000. Everyone else folded back to Secilmis, who put his opponent all-in for a total of approximately 390,000. Liu, holding quads, snap-called and then found out the bad news that he was exiting the 2021 WSOP Main Event in one of the most cruel ways imaginable.
