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

Don't Check-Raise Cheong


Action passed to Joseph Cheong on the button who raised to 130,000. Evan Lamprea made the call on the button and the flop fell {A-Clubs}{4-Spades}{9-Hearts}.

Lamprea checked and Cheong bet out 150,000. Lamprea went for the check-raise to 420,000 but Cheong came back by moving all in to put his opponent to a decision for his tournament life. Lamprea thought better of it and folded to leave himself with 1.74 million. Cheong is up to 9.1 million.
