Someone Got Chino'd


Our Dutch colleague brings us news from the frontier regarding Chino Rheem. Apparently, he and Tyler Kenney got in a preflop raising war that ended with Rheem snap-shoving and Kenney making the call for his last ~60,000. Kenney rolled over pocket kings, but Rheem said he could beat that.

"Aces," he announced, but when he flopped his hand onto the felt, it showed a much more lowly {A-} {2-}. Not quite, Chino.

It doesn't matter when you river an ace, though, and another rocket on fifth street sent a big pot to Rheem's corner here in the eleventh hour. He's still stacking up, but that big one will put him in contention for the overnight chip lead with close to 190,000. Kenney, on the other hand, has to be a bit burned as he leaves with nothing.
