Avoid a Sweat by Just Flopping Quads

Eight’s Yer Mate

Fed up of the stomach-twisting wait to see if your overcards will hit/pair will stay in front? Flop something unbeatable and just stare calmly into the middle distance while the turn and river are dealt.

Just now Justin Boyle got his 475,000 stack in preflop with Ad 8d, against Seamus Cahill’s 6s 6c.

The flop was 8h 8s 8c – widely considered lucky, and certainly so for Boyle. Cahill was drawing dead and paid up, his stack dropping to 2,200,000.

“The absolute coconuts,” noted Will Kassouf.
