Chen Soars Ahead

Yan Chen takes a major lead against Mike Wattel

Mike Wattel opened to 25,000 from the button and Yan Chen three-bet to 70,000 from the big blind.

Wattel took his time ruffling chips in one hand while sweating his hand in the other before making the call for an additional 45,000.

Both players stood pat and after nearly sixty seconds deliberating, Chen fired out a bet of 75,000.

Wattel spent the same amount of time mulling over his decision before making the call.

"Ten-six" announced Yen as he rolled over his {10-}{6-}{5-}{4-}{3-} to best Wattel's {10-}{9-}{7-}{5-}{2-}.

As Chen raked in the pot to climb to 920,000, Wattel slipped down to just 205,000 in chips.
