Big Blind is Insect on the Windshield of the Chuck Truck

The Chuck Truck is rolling.
We know at least one player who's going home with a bad beat story. Hopefully his friends won't charge him to hear it. Charles Chua opened the pot preflop with a raise to 5,000, bringing a call from Bertrand "ElkY" Grospellier before the big blind reraised to 16,600. Only Chua called.

The flop came {J-Spades} {8-Clubs} {6-Diamonds}. The big blind checked to Chua, who bet 20,000, then called. Both players checked the {8-Spades} turn. On the river, the big blind led out for 24,000. Chua deliberated briefly before shiping it all in. The big blind snap-called.

A roar went up from players around the table as the hands were opened. The big blind table {J-Diamonds} {J-Hearts} for a full house. Only one hand could beat him, and Chua had it -- {8-Hearts} {8-Diamonds} for quads.

With that massive pot, Chua has jumped to 266,000.
