Two interesting back-to-back hands have recently played out on the 2017 Suncity Cup Macau Final Table. The first was decided pre-flop and was just the appetizer to the juicy action that followed.
It was Lim Chin Wei who was the aggressor, making it 200,000 to go from the button and Chien Jenyen quickly moved all-in from the small blind. This was enough to get big blind Je Ho Lee to get out of the way quickly but Wei now had a decision on his hands.
The Taiwanese player’s shove was for 2.34 million so represented close to 40 percent of Wei’s stack and the Malaysian eventually elected to wait for a better spot, leaving Jenyen free to rake in 320,000 in blinds and antes.
There were fireworks the very next hand with action folding around to Je Ho Lee in the small blind, who open-shoved for close to 1.8 million and was called extremely quickly by big blind Eugene Co and the hands were turned over.
Je Ho Lee:
Lee was the at-risk player but had the best hand and the runout saw the Korean double to a little over 3.6 million while Co took a hit and dropped down to around 1.75 million.
