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

George Pushing with King High

Joseph Cheong

Christopher George and Joseph Cheong saw a flop of {9-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{6-Clubs}. George bet out 65,000 before Cheong raised to 145,000. George thought and then reraised to 300,000. Cheong made the call.

The turn card brought the {9-Clubs} and now two pair laid on board. George cocked back and fired out 395,000, leaving himself with roughly 585,000 behind. Cheong thought and then let it go, giving George the pot. George showed the {K-Spades}{J-Hearts}.

"Nice bet," said Cheong, who dropped back to 3.85 million.

George increased to 1.95 million.
