Addamo Eliminates Chen and Takes Chip Lead

poolshir • Level 13: 20,000-40,000, 40,000 ante
Michael Addamo

The board read {9-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{5-Hearts} with around 300,000 in the middle.

Michael Addamo was sitting in the big blind, he had a stack of 100,000-value chips in front of him with the all-in button next to it. James Chen had a bet of 365,000 in front of him from the cutoff and was sitting in the tank. After a while, Chen sighed and made the call for the 1,200,000 he had behind.

James Chen: {A-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}
Michael Addamo: {J-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}

Chen held top pair but Addamo had turned two pair. Chen needed another ace to double up but the {4-Hearts} on the river wasn't that as he was eliminated for now.
