Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Small Spade For Cheong

With the board reading {3-Spades}{9-Hearts}{7-Spades}{K-Spades}{9-Spades}, we caught up to see Joseph Cheong contemplating calling a bet of 33,700 from his opponent. Cheong announced call and his opponent quickly said "Eight-high."

Members of the table were astonished to see Cheong flip over {4-Spades}{4-Clubs}, for only a flush with the four of spades. Regardless, it was enough to win the pot and boost Cheong's stack.

The very next hand Cheong raised to 4,700 preflop and was called by the small blind. The flop came {7-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} and the small blind checked. Cheong continued with a bet of 5,900 and his opponent made the call. Both players checked a turn of {2-Hearts} and the river brought the {5-Diamonds}. The small blind player fired out 10,000 and Cheong folded, losing some of what he won the previous hand.
