Griffin Fires Three Barrels to Scare Marais Off

[user197301]

Kenneth Griffin, with his boisterous rail cheering his every move, raised to 150,000 from the small blind. Jean Luc Marais defended his big blind and we saw a flop of {6-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{J-Hearts} hit the table.

Griffin continued with a bet of 100,000 and the Frenchman came along for the ride. The turn card fell {K-Hearts} and Griffin led out for another 100,000 bet. Marais wanted to see the river card and splashed four T25,000 chips into the middle.

After the {9-Spades} arrived on the river, Griffin fired a third barrel and made it 200,000 to go. Marais finally became a believer and surrendered by tossing his cards into the muck.
