Chen Doubles

Sometimes, it's better to be lucky than good.

Bill Chen open-shoved for his last 35,500 from middle position, and the action folded to a player who called out of the big blind.

Chen: {k-Spades}{9-Spades}
Opponent: {a-Clubs}{j-Spades}

The {9-Clubs}{a-Spades}{10-Spades} flop gave both players a pair, but Chen was drawing to a flush. The {j-Diamonds} on the turn took away Chen's king outs, but he could still make a straight or a flush. The {5-Spades} spiked on the river to give him a winning flush, and Chen doubled to over 70,000 chips.

"Just got lucky," Chen shrugged. "Good call."
