• Level 23: 9,000-18,000, 2,000 ante
Joseph Cheong

On the very next hand, Sunny Jung once again opened to 40,000. Action folded to Joseph Cheong on the button and he three-bet the action to 115,000. The blinds folded and Jung wasted little time moving all in over the top. Cheong instantly called for his tournament life of 528,000 and the hands were turned up.

Jung: {A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs}
Cheong: {J-Hearts}{J-Spades}

The board came down {8-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{J-Diamonds}{A-Clubs}, giving Cheong a winning set of jacks for the double. He now has about 1.1 million in chips.
