Quads for Aristidou

It's not very often we catch a really big hand, but we did just that, or at least the tail end of one. With about 20,000 in the pot and a board reading {4-Hearts}{J-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{J-Diamonds}, an unknown player with a big stack moved all in and put the pressure on Peter Aristidou, who had 9,300 behind. Unfortunately for the bettor, Aristidou snap-called and rolled over {J-Spades}{J-Hearts} for quad jacks. He doubled on the hand to about 40,000 and received a pat on the back from the player to his right.
