Hitting the Draw

Tom Chou

We now have another stack over one million after Tom Chou outdrew chip leader Justin Chan on a recent hand.

On a flop of {4-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{9-Spades}, Tom decided to take a big chance holding {j-Hearts}{10-Spades} and went all-in. Justin, who was holding {q-Clubs}{8-Spades}, made the call.

Tom immediately got what he needed on the turn as the {7-Spades} magically appeared, completing his straight.

The river blanked out and Tom got a big double-up to 1,160,000 in chips. Justin is still the chip leader with a stack of 1,400,000.
