Foxen Tries to "Steal" From Kempe

DegenOnTour • Level 2: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante

It folded around to Alex Foxen on the button and he raised to 30,000. Rainer Kempe defended his big blind and they saw the {Q-Clubs}{K-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds} flop appear.

Both players checked this time and the turn was the {10-Spades}. Kempe checked to Foxen again and this time he bet 45,000. Kempe called and the {8-Hearts} river was dealt.

This time both players checked again Foxen turned open a {10-}, but as soon as Kempe opened up {K-Spades}{J-Clubs} Foxen mucked his cards.

Shan Huang asked Foxen why he bet on the turn. "Why do you bet the turn without a jack? Are you trying to steal from Kempe? Don't try, he's good."

Foxen added he had two pair and Kempe was the one stacking chips.
