Not King-Six

Joseph Cheong

Brandon Barnes raised pre-flop to 16,000 in the cutoff seat and Joseph Cheong three-bet to 46,000 in the big blind. Barnes made the call and both players saw the dealer open {8-Hearts} {8-Diamonds} {8-Clubs} on the flop.

Cheong checked and Barnes bet 30,000. Cheong answered with a call and the dealer flipped the {K-Diamonds} on the turn. Both players checked and saw the {K-Clubs} come on the river. Cheong instantly announced an all in for 265,000 putting Barnes under huge pressure. After struggling for a minute or two he finally opted to fold.

Cheong flashed a six as he mucked his hand and Barnes asked, "king six?" "Not king six", Cheong replied.
