Derek Hanauer Eliminates Edmund Capangpangan with Quads

In Level 3, Event #8 winner Edmund Capangpangan was in late position, heads up with Derek Hanauer in the small blind. The board was 3x 3c 2c 6h 4c and they were all in on the river. Capangpangan had pocket sixes for sixes full of threes, but it was no good against Hanauer, who had pocket threes and flopped quads.

After the hand, a tablemate pointed out to Hanauer that he did not have the nuts. He knew the straight flush was possible, but he was willing to take the chance. Hanauer is up to 46,000 chips, up from a starting stack of 25,000.
