Chou-ing Up the Competition
Ben Chou (Astoria, NY) arrives at table 2 with 600k+ and the table says he gets a gift of 250k from Willie Hoover (Williamsport, PA).
The bottom line is that Hoover flopped a set of kings and when a third club hits the turn gets into a betting war with Chou. The chips are all in on the river and Chou tables A 2 for the nut flush.
"He punted 250," says one player as Chou now has the chip lead with 875k.
Also arriving at the table is Larry Abrams (Mahwah, NJ) who was the dinner break chip leader with 580k and he's holding steady. Chou is on Abrams' immediate left so it should be interesting poker between the big stacks.
