First, we caught up with the action on the turn of a board. Chino Rheem was on the button and had a large pile of yellow chips that was at least 20,000 in front of him as either a bet or raise. It was now up to the player under the gun who called all in. Rheem said “Nice call” and turned over while his opponent showed . The river wasn’t a and Chino paid off the players 14,800 remaining.
Then the next hand, there was already around 9,000 in the pot preflop with the action four-handed on a flop. The small blind checked and the big blind (UTG that doubled through Rheem from the previous hand for those of you who didn't realize at home) bet 5,000. A middle position player folded and it was now on Rheem in the cutoff who raised to 15,000. The small blind folded and the big blind must have believed Rheem this time as he flashed the before he laid his hand down.
