Chen Doubles Through Schillhabel

poolshir • Level 10: 10,000-20,000, 20,000 ante
James Chen

James Chen raised to 45,000 from the cutoff and Stefan Schillhabel shoved with the slightly bigger stack from the small blind. Jean-Noel Thorel quickly folded his big blind and Chen called after considering it for a while for the 657,000 he had behind.

James Chen: {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds}
Stefan Schillhabel: {a-Clubs}{k-Hearts}

The flop came {q-Spades}{a-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} to give Chen two pair immediately.

The turn was the {q-Hearts} to give Chen a full house and Schillhabel was drawing dead.

The {j-Diamonds} on the river was just a formality to complete the board and after paying Chen his double-up, Schillhabel was left with a mere 49,000.
