Thorel Rivers a Flush to Double Up

ajlamers • Level 9: 8,000-16,000, 16,000 ante

On a flop of {6-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}, James Chen led out for 135,000 from under the gun. Jean-Noel Thorel shipped all in for 725,000 on the button and Chen asked for a count before making a sigh-call.

Jean-Noel Thorel: {q-Hearts}{8-Hearts}
James Chen: {j-Hearts}{j-Clubs}

The {10-Clubs} on the turn was safe for Chen but the {a-Hearts} on the river gave Thorel a flush to double up.
