Chien Jenyen

A huge pot played out between Je Ho Le and Chien Jenyen that has blown the tournament wide open. We only caught the tail end of the hand, but that was pretty exciting.

The action happened so fast we did not even get a chance to count the pot, but we can tell you what we know for sure. It was a blind on blind battle between Taiwan’s Chien Jenyen and Korea’s Je Ho Lee and the action was at the river with the community cards spread {3-Hearts}{10-Spades}{2-Diamonds}{k-Hearts}{9-Hearts} and we arrived just as Lee pulled the trigger and moved all-in from the big blind.

Jenyen called immediately and from the look on Lee’s face, it appeared he had been caught with his hand in the cookie jar. The Korean player sheepishly tabled {4-}{8-} for a stone cold bluff. Unfortunately for Lee his timing was a little off as Jenyen had rivered two pairs with {10-Clubs}{9-Spades}. Lee dropped down to 2.3 million after that little misadventure and Jenyen stacked up to 2 million.
