Match 2: Aces Again for Lemaire

Hugo Lemaire
Hugo Lemaire

No, this isn't a repost.

Joseph Cheong had the button and opened to 12,000. Hugo Lemaire three-bet to 32,000, and Cheong called.

The flop came {8-Spades}{9-Spades}{k-Spades}, and Lemaire tossed a green T25,000 chip and a T5,000 chip forward. Cheong called. The turn was another nine - the {9-Hearts} - and Lemaire led again - this time for 65,000. Cheong called.

The {2-Diamonds} completed the board, and Lemaire fired a third bullet worth 155,000. Cheong sat back in his seat silently, assessing the situation. His eyes were fixed on the board, and he was riffling orange T5,000 chips in his left hand. He eventually folded, and Lemaire showed {a-Hearts}{a-Clubs}.
