Mr. Macau With the Quick Double-Up

Charles Chua

One of the most popular players in the field today, Charles "Mr. Macau" Chua, has just doubled up off Victor Chen.

On a flop of {j-Hearts}{9-Spades}{8-Spades}, Charles checked over to Victor, who sensed that Charles had nothing and decided to shove. Charles made the call and the cards were tabled:

Charles: {9-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}
Victor: {4-Spades}{5-Spades}

Mr. Macau had hit two-pair on the flop but Victor could still eliminate him if another spade landed. That didn't happen, though, as the last two cards were {a-Hearts} and {5-Hearts}.

Mr. Macau is now up to about 19,600.
