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

Cheong Welcomed By The Big Guns


Joseph Cheong recently joined the secondary feature table and didn't wait long to get into the thick of things after calling a 150,000-chip preflop raise from Jakob Toestesen.

They took a flop of {7-Hearts}{6-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} and Toestesen checked to Cheong in position who fired 205,000. Toestesen made the call.

Both players checked the {A-Hearts} turn before the {2-Spades} fell on the river. Toestesen fired out 310,000 and Cheong made the call.

Toestesen revealed {A-Diamonds}{A-Clubs} for the rockets as Cheong flashed the {A-Spades} and mucked. Cheong slips to 8.5 million with Toestesen up to 5.15 million.
