Alekhin Takes Huge Chip Lead From Jacques

Vincent Jacques - Caught.

Wow, this is a biggy.

Vincent Jacques raised to 25,000 from the button and Stanislav Alekhin made it 62,000 from the big blind which Jacques called.

Both players checked the {7-Spades}{8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds} flop before Alekhin check-called 60,000 on the {Q-Hearts} turn. The river was the {10-Diamonds} and Alekhin check-called a huge 170,000 bet on the {10-Diamonds} river.

Jacques showed a complete bluff {K-Hearts}{J-Clubs} and had been caught by Alekhin's {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}. The Russian is a massive chip leader now.
