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

Cheong to the Lead

Joseph Cheong had 235,000 chips out in front of him when we walked up to the table, so we're guessing there was an opening raise in front of him. Either way, Christopher George reraised to 560,000, Cheong shoved all in, and George called off his last 1.37 million to put himself at risk.

Showdown
Cheong: {A-Diamonds} {A-Spades}
George: {Q-Diamonds} {Q-Hearts}

The board ran {8-Hearts} {8-Diamonds} {7-Hearts} {A-Clubs} {J-Spades}, and that's not going to do anything for George. He's been eliminated in that big pot, and Cheong's new stack sits at 6.2 million -- good for the top spot.
