Choon Lim Cripples Marc Rivera

Choon Lim
After losing a big part of his stack on the previous hand, Choon Lim went over the top of Binh Nguyen's pre-flop raise by going all-in.

Marc Rivera, who had Choon covered, then declared all-in as well while Binh got out of the way.

Choon: {8-Diamonds}{8-Clubs}
Marc: {j-Spades}{j-Hearts}

Marc was way ahead with jacks and stayed that way on the flop of {5-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{a-Clubs}.

However, Choon got some new outs when the {9-Hearts} came, and he hit his runner-runner straight when the {7-Spades} landed on the river.

Marc is now down to about 64,000.
