Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Cheong Sucks Out to Bust Speranza


Joseph Cheong raised to 85,000 from the cutoff seat. Gianluca Speranza was in the small blind and moved all in for 480,000. Cheong made the call. Cheong held the {A-Spades}{8-Spades} and Speranza the {A-Hearts}{K-Spades}.

The board ran out {A-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{6-Spades}{7-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds} to give Cheong two pair and the win. Speranza was eliminated as Cheong improved to over 3.8 million. He's now the chip leader.
