Heroux Gets Full Payout

zedmaster84 • Level 1: 150-300, 0 ante

On the tail end of a big pot with a completed board showing {J-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}, George Chase check-called a bet of 35,000 by Maxime Heroux and mucked when he was shown {A-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{3-Hearts} for the nut flush. Xuedong Li, who had already built a profit early on, mentioned in table chat "I had the queen-high flush."

Chase dropped to fewer than half the starting stack while Heroux became the early chip leader.
