Not Even Sabat Can Stand Up to the Chuck Truck

Where is the immovable object that will stand up to the unstoppable force that is Charles Chua? Even Edward Sabat is having difficulty handling Chua. The two players took an unraised flop of {8-Diamonds} {7-Hearts} {6-Clubs} and checked it through to the turn {J-Diamonds}. There Chua bet 10,000. Sabat raised him to 20,000, but Chua raised right back to 70,000. Sabat made the call.

On the river {A-Diamonds}, we thought there might be some more fireworks. Instead both players checked it down. Chua was first to open and showed {8-Clubs} {6-Diamonds} for a flopped two pair. That was a winner.

Sabat and Chua are both a shade under 700,000 chips.
