zedmaster84 • Level 30: 125,000-250,000, 0 ante
James Chen

Alex Epstein raised to 650,000 on the button and James Chen called in the small blind. On the {7-Spades}{5-Hearts}{3-Diamonds} flop, Chen checked and called a bet of 750,000 before checking again the {9-Spades} on the turn. Epstein now bet 2,250,000 for more than two third of the pot.

Chen moved all in and Epstein snap-folded in the final hand of the level before the players headed into their first 15-minute break of the day.
