The Chino Rheem juggernaut seems to have lost a wheel during the past few levels. Gone is the cheery face and now there sits a solemn look. Here is Rheem doubling up Brett Richey.
Richey opened up to 16,500 in mid-position, Rheem made the three-bet to 40,000 on the button, Richey shipped it for 88,000 and Rheem called.
So Rheem was way ahead and we needed five cards in the middle of the felt. The flop was and Richey got a stroke of good fortune. The turn and river are woeful for Rheem and he is now down to 184,000 chips; Richey is up to 172,500.
