Chuck's Ladies Take it Down

Charles Choi

Over on one of the far tables, Charles "Chuck" Choi got a much-needed double-up off one of the chip leaders.

On a board of {k-Spades}{q-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{7-Spades}, Claude Diel bet out 8,500 and Chuck responded by going all-in for his last 14,000. It was a quick call by Claude and the cards were tabled:

Claude: {j-}{10-}
Chuck: {q-}{q-}

Chuck had hit the set on the flop but would need to dodge a nine or ace to stay alive. The turn {7-Spades} blanked out and river {k-Spades} cemented the win for Chuck, giving him a double to about 30,000.
