Chen Throws a "Monkey Wrench"

• Taso 24

Pot-Limit Five-Card Draw

After an uneventful Pot-Limit Omaha round chosen by Aaron Schaff, Bill Chen selected five-card draw.

"Bill, throwing the monkey wrench out there," Daniel Idema said with a smile.

Chen opened for a raise to 20,000 in the cutoff and was called by Shane Abbott in the small blind. Abbott drew just one, while Chen dumped three.

Abbott came out betting with 22,000, and Chen made the call. Abbott showed him {8-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{9-Clubs} for two pair.
