Event 56: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

In the Moment, with David Chiu

Shamus • Tase 4: 75-150, 0 ante
David Chiu

There was about 3,500 in the pot and the board showed {2-Spades}{5-Hearts}{K-Hearts}. Four-time WSOP bracelet winner David Chiu was in late position, 1,250 chips having been slid out in front of him. Meanwhile his opponent in early position had a column of 3,075 sitting in front of him, and Chiu was contemplating how to respond to the check-raise.

Finally Chiu made the call. "You ahead... right now," he said, turning over {8-Hearts}{3-Hearts}. Indeed, his opponent had Chiu for the moment with {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}.

Chiu's opponent was still ahead after the {J-Spades} turn. But the river was the {6-Hearts}, filling Chiu's flush and sending another player railward.

Chiu has about 8,000. Right now, anyway.
