Match 2: Lemaire Check-Raises River

• Taso 18: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante

Joseph Cheong had the button and opened to 12,000. Hugo Lemaire called.

The flop was {q-Hearts}{q-Spades}{7-Clubs}. Lemaire check-called 16,500 from Cheong, and the turn was the {j-Clubs}. Both players knuckled.

The {10-Hearts} completed the board, and Lemaire checked a third time. Cheong fired 27,500, and Lemaire check-raised to 80,000. Cheong released.

Surprisingly, Lemaire didn't show aces.
