In the last hand of the night, Josh Garber got it all in from UTG+1 for 73,500 with AdKd, but he needed to improve to stay alive against the AhAc of Andrew Esposito in the big blind.

The flop came AsKsKc, and Garber flopped kings full of aces, but he was still way behind Esposito’s aces full of kings.

The turn card was the Qc, the river card was — the Kh!

The entire table erupted in excitement as Garber rivered quad kings to bear Esposito’s aces full of kings and double up in chips.

As they were bagging up their chips for Day 2, Esposito said, “I’m not upset. I’m just in shock.”

Josh Garber  –  153,000  (77 bb)
Andrew Esposito  –  15,500  (8 bb)
