Marais Increases His Lead

Level 24 : 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante

Action folded to Ken Griffin in the small blind who raised to 85,000. Jean Luc Marais tossed out the chips to call and they saw the flop come {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}. Both players checked and when the turn brought the {a-Spades} they both checked again. The river was the {4-Spades} and Griffin led out with a bet of 100,000. Marais quickly called and the hands were revealed.

Griffin: {3-Spades}{3-Hearts}
Marais: {k-Hearts}{q-Hearts}

Marais' aces and queens were best and he took down the pot.
