Joe Palma has flopped his fair share of sets today and worked that magic again to cripple Michael Hager. Palma opened for 350,000 on the button and Hager shoved for 6,350,000 in the big blind. Palma dropped chips in and called with Q♣Q♦ and was in a huge flip against the A♦K♣ of Hager.
Sure enough, the Q♠9♣8♥ flop gave Palma a set and for good measure, the Q♥ hit the turn to give Palma quads. Palma is now over 12,000,000 and holds two-thirds of the chips in play while Hager is down to less than five big blinds.
