Event #83: $100,000 No-Limit Hold'em High Roller

Grafton Not Phased by Chen's Check-Raise

• Level 16: 25,000-50,000, 50,000 ante

Sam Grafton raised to 105,000 from the cutoff and James Chen defended from the big blind. The flop came {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}{4-Clubs} and Chen checked to Grafton who continued for 75,000. Chen check-raised to 225,000 but Grafton called.

The turn was the {q-Diamonds} and Chen checked again. Grafton fired out another bet of 250,000 and this time Chen laid his hand down.

"I would have gone for the double check-raise if it wasn't a queen on the turn," Chen pointed out.

Grafton just chuckled to himself. "It's been a while since someone's double check-raised me."
