Chua Keeps on Accumulating

The Chuck Truck doesn't need luck
So Myung Sim is one of several players who can't seem to gain any traction with Charles Chua at the table. Sim raised to 19,000 from under the gun and was called only by Chua. The flop was all Broadway, {A-Spades} {10-Diamonds} {J-Clubs}. Chua, sitting behind a pile of chips that looks as big as the Venetian Macau, checked to Sim, who bet 25,000. Chua made the call.

Both players checked the hand down the rest of the way, with the turn coming {6-Clubs} and the river {7-Clubs}. Chua opened first, showing {K-Diamonds} {J-Diamonds} for second pair. That was a winner, causing Sim's chip count to go down to 160,000 and Chua's to increase to 695,000.
