On Kristy's part, quite possibly.
On Chad's... I dunno. It's not unreasonable for him to figure Kristy's got an ace in that spot like 90% of the time - she re-raised him before the flop and bet the turn when quads came on the board. What else does that aside from an ace or a total brain fart? She's certainly not likely to call a bet on the end with anything much less than an ace.
Both are solid players outside of this arena, FWIW - I don't know if either of them are heads up specialists though. I know Kristy mostly plays limit games.
