Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Chips for Cheong

Shamus • Level 9: 500-1,000, 100 ante
Joseph Cheong

It folded to 2010 November Niner Joseph Cheong in the hijack seat, and as Cheong often does when folded to in the hijack seat, he raised -- this time to 2,300. The cutoff called, as did the big blind.

The flop came {5-Clubs}{8-Diamonds}{4-Clubs}. The big blind checked, and Cheong continued with a bet of 3,100. The cutoff quickly called, and the third player stepped aside. The turn brought the {K-Spades}, and both players checked.

The river was the {10-Spades}. Cheong bet 6,600, and his opponent didn't waste much time before calling. Cheong quickly opened his hand -- {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds} for top pair, top kicker -- and his opponent mucked.

Cheong has about 128,000.
