Marais Bleeding Chips

It seems that Kenneth Griffin's aggressive play is working so far during this heads-up match.

Jean Luc Marais raised to 205,000 on the button and Ken Griffin re-raised to 705,000 from the big blind. Marais called and they saw the flop come {k-Spades}{10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}. Griffin bet out 1,000,000 and Marais folded his hand.

On the very next hand the two players saw a flop of {q-Hearts}{7-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and Marais bet out 175,000 only to have Griffin raise to 500,000. Marais angrily slid his cards away and began rubbing his head, Griffin's aggression obviously getting to him.
