Chowan's Smiling Now

• Level 4: 100-200, 25 ante

After the button raised to 650, Steve Chowan shoved all in from the small blind for a total of 2,075. Both the big blind and the button called. The two players with chips behind checked every street and the board ran out {2-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{j-Spades}{3-Diamonds}. The button showed {k-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}, the big blind mucked his hand, and Chowan showed {j-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds} for a full house. After the hand the dealer asked Chowan, "Were you smiling after the turn?" and Chowan just grinned as he raked in the chips.
