Chen's Two Pair Loses to Straight


After one player checked the {10-Clubs}{5-Hearts}{4-Spades} flop, Bill Chen bet 500. Vanessa Rousso and one other folded before another payer called. The first player who had checked then called as well, leaving three players in to the turn.

The turn was the {6-Hearts} and all three players checked to see the {J-Clubs} land on the river. The first player checked and Chen bet 1,200. The next player folded and then the first player check-raised to 3,800. Chen made the call, quickly, and tabled the {5-Spades}{4-Diamonds} right away. His opponent turned over a winning {8-Diamonds}{7-Spades} for the straight.
