Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Cheong's Gone

Joesph Cheong makes his exit from the 2011 WSOP Main Event.

Joseph Cheong's hope of making it back-to-back November Nine appearances has come to an abrupt end at the hands of Phil Collins.

The action folded around to Collins who raised to 75,000 from the cutoff before Cheong re-raised out of the small blind, making it 200,000 to go. Collins snap-shoved and Cheong called, tabling {A-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} but found himself crushed by Collins' {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}!

Despite pairing up on the flop of {3-Hearts}{9-Spades}{Q-Clubs}, the turn and river ran out {4-Clubs}, {5-Spades} and Cheong was eliminated. There's no stopping Collins now - he's dominating this field with more than 8.6 million in chips!
