James Chen Eliminated in 3rd Place ($13,170)

Congratulations to James Chen from Pittsburgh, PA who finished 3rd in our DeepStack Championship Event #48 $600 PLO $75K GTD winning $13,170.

Chen began the hand by raising to 59,000 from the button and was called by Karl Held in the small blind.

The flop came Q♠ 3♣ T♣ and Held checked. Chen bet 31,000. Held called.

The turn brought the J♠ and Held checked once again. Chen bet. Held raised putting Chen all in. Chen called.

Held: K♠ 9♦ 9♣ 5♥
Chen: K♥ Q♦ Q♣ 8♦

Chen had flopped a set of queens but fell behind to Held who made a straight on the turn.

The 4♠ completed the board which was no help for Chen as he was eliminated in 3rd place.
