Cheong Doubles Through


Victorino Torres moved all in from the button and Chong Cheong snap-called. Cheong held the {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts} and Torres the {A-Hearts}{J-Spades}. The crowd jumped up as our first all-in situation with a showdown occurred.

The flop came down with the {5-Diamonds} in the window, but behind that was the {K-Diamonds} and {Q-Diamonds} to give Cheong two pair and the lead. Torres asked the dealer for a ten on the turn, but the {Q-Spades} gave Cheong a full house and sealed the deal for his double up. The river completed the board with the {2-Hearts}.

The pot was worth 1.93 million and that's how much Cheong has now. Torres is still in the lead with about 4.8 million.
