Chen's Fighting Spirit

Yardley • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

Andrew Chen may be the lowest on chips but he is not giving up without a fight.

In a three-way limped pot on a flop of {7-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{6-Clubs} Chen called a bet of 80,000 from Craig McCorkell and Fady Kamar folded. The turn card was the {4-Diamonds} and Chen called a 140,000 bet. On the river {a-Spades} McCorkell checked and Chen bet 400,000. McCorkell folded and Chen collected the chips.

“Weird hand.” Chen said. “Maybe we had the same hand?” McCorkell reasoned.

Soon after Chen defended his big blind from an open from Kamar. It got to the turn of a board reading {5-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} before Chen bet 160,000. Fady made the call and the river card was the {10-Hearts}. A 360,000 bet from Chen took Fady a while to call but he did and Chen had to show {j-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}. Fady beat him with {a-Diamonds}{4-Spades}.
