A Confident Quehen Takes The Chip Lead

Joey Weissman & Jeremy Quehen

Oh, how quick things can change in poker. The atmosphere has changed from a super charged American sing-song to a French revolution. The once super-confident Joey Weissman looks nervous and down beaten, and his once charming rail are now throwing insults at the young Frenchman, who is soaking in every word and growing in stature and confidence. The red, white and blue is now bleu, bleu, bleu!

Quehen raised to 200,000, Weissman three-bet to 500,000, Qehen made it 1,000,000 and Weissman folded. Quehen showed the room the lone {2-Clubs} which resulted in a few comments from the rail.

Then Weissman raised to 200,00 and Quehen made the call. The flop contained more clubs than the streets of Ibiza Town - {A-Clubs} {8-Clubs} {2-Clubs}. Quehen checked, Weissman bet 250, Quehen check-raised to 650,000 and Weissman called. The turn was the {Q-Diamonds} and Quehen made a bet of 750,000; Weissman called. The final card was the {3-Diamonds} and this time Quehen made it 1,750,000 (the biggest bet we have seen bar an all-in) and Weissman made the call.

Quehen leapt to his feet and threw the {Q-Clubs} {8-Clubs} triumphantly onto the table. The French rail rose in unison and French chants filled the air. Quehen is the new chip leader with 9.2 million and it is the first time for a very long time that Weissman has had to play with the inferior stack.
