In a three-handed pot, both Neil Arce and Will Cheong saw a flop of K♦ 5♠ 6♠. Arce, in the small blind at seat 9, leads out on it for 900. Cheong makes the quick call from the big blind and their other opponent steps out of the hand.
On the turn 3♦ Arce continues his story and puts another 1800 in the middle. Cheong again quickly calls and this prompts Arce to lean around the dealer and get a better look at his opponent in seat 1.
When the river 5♦ lands Arce quickly taps the table with his fingers and the action is passed to Cheong. He seizes on it and rolls 3500 more into the pot. It perhaps looks like he’s just betting his busted flush draw and Arce ends up making the call. However, Cheong was just getting some extra value for his K♥ Q♠ and Arce mucks his hand.
Arce is now down to around 25,000 in chips.
