Andrew Chen has been sitting over near the rail in the Orange section, and he's putting on quite a show for the nearby spectators as he continues to abuse his starting table.
Two hands ago, we watched three players (including Chen) check through a flop, and the put trips on board on fourth street. Chen led out with 1,600, one player folded, and the second opponent called to see the river. It was the , and a second bet of 4,100 was enough for Chen to take it down right there.
The next hand, Chen made a preflop raise to 800 from the button, and the small blind three-bet to 2,750. Undeterred, Chen popped it right back to 6,800 total. That finally coxed a fold from his opponent, and Chen put both cards on the felt and told him he could pick one. The small blind drew the , a weak card but strong enough to win the pot.
With it comes a stack of more than 130,000, and Chen takes over the top spot on our leader board for the time being.
