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

Cheong Busts Lamprea

Evan Lamprea busto

From the hijack seat, Joseph Cheong raised to 195,000. Evan Lamprea reraised all in for about 1.65 million. WHen action got back to Cheong, he asked for a rough count and then made the call. He held two black tens and Lamprea the {A-Clubs}{J-Hearts}.

Let's flip for another tournament life.

The flop came down {9-Clubs}{7-Spades}{2-Hearts} and Lamprea was still in need of some help with two cards to come. The turn was the {4-Hearts} and the river the {3-Diamonds}. Lamprea failed to hit and was sent to the rail.

Cheong increased to a whopping 12.9 million and is neck and neck with William Thorson for the lead.
