Charles "Mr. Macau" Chua

Charles "Mr. Macau" Chua looks like the day's clear-cut chip leader after winning a big hand against the player next to him.

We caught up to the hand on the river, with the board showing {k-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{4-Spades}{4-Hearts}{3-Hearts} and more than 25,000 in the pot.

Charles had made a big bet of 16,000, prompting his lone opponent to go into the tank for a good few minutes.

Finally, the player called, but he could only muck his hand as he saw that it was no good against Charles' full house with {8-}{8-}.

He is now at about 97,000 in chips.
