Crazy Eights For Chen

• Level 1: 50-100, 0 ante

We only walked up to catch the tail end of this pot but it was a pretty big one for the first level of the day. There was already 11,000 or so in the pot when we saw the river card fall on a {8-Spades} {J-Clubs} {A-Clubs} {10-Clubs} {3-Diamonds} board. It was heads-up, and a player we don't recognize check-called a bet of 5,000 from Andrew Chen.

At showdown, Chen tabled his {8-Clubs} {8-Diamonds} for the set, and it was good enough to pull the pot to give him some early breathing room. Mark him down for 41,000 now.
