Leong (left) Watches the Flop as his Opponent Can't Believe the Bad Timing
Chris Leong (New York, NY) was put to the test on the last hand before the color-up break and he passed with flying colors.
Leong three-bets with pocket jacks after two players called the big blind, but one of the limpers moved all in and put Leong to the test for 60k, 3/4 of his stack.
Leong made the call and his opponent is in bad shape with pocket 10s. "I almost folded," says Leong, as his jacks hold. "He hadn't played a hand all day."
Leong is now up to 140k as blinds continue with Level 12 (800/1,600/200 ante).
