Joseph Cheong

Joseph Cheong most famously stormed onto the poker scene in 2010 when he made the final table of the World Series of Poker Main Event. It was there that Cheong went on to finish third for over $4.13 million and ignite his poker career.

That same year, during the break before the WSOP final table played out, Cheong took second in the EPT London High Roller Turbo for £162,280 and first in the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em event at the Festa Al Lago in Las Vegas.

Cheong is having yet another very successful year in 2012 with nearly a million in live winnings. Most notably, Cheong took second the the $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em — Mixed Max at the WSOP for nearly $300,000, then he came fourth in the WSOP Europe Main Event for nearly €300,000.

Here in the final seven, Cheong will be looking to continue his successful year with a win, and he'll enter the day fifth in chips with 392,000.
