Double Up for Cheong

Joseph Cheong

Just one hand later after he's been crippled by Joel Nordkvist, Joseph Cheong shoved his stack of 32,000 from under the gun pre-flop and was called by Benny Spindler in the big blind.

Cheong: {7-Diamonds} {5-Clubs}
Spindler: {A-Spades} {3-Diamonds}

Cheong was ready to leave the table after he saw an ace in Spindler's hand, but the {9-Spades} {4-Spades} {5-Diamonds} flop made him get back to his seat. The {8-Clubs} on the turn and the {K-Spades} on the river made no difference and Cheong's fives were good enough for a double up.
