Nordkvist vs. Cheong


Joseph Cheong opened for 5,000 from middle position only to have Joel Nordkvist move all in from the big blind for 47,200. Cheong made the call and discovered the bad news.

Nordkvist: {A-Hearts}{K-Diamonds}
Cheong: {K-Spades}{Q-Hearts}

The {J-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{8-Clubs} flop made things interesting as it Cheong an open-ended straight draw, but Nordkvist was able to fade it as the {2-Hearts} appeared on the turn followed by the {Q-Clubs} river.
