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

Not Much Value for Cheong


Joseph Cheong made a second-nut flush but was only able to get one street of value out of Pascal LeFrancois. LeFrancois opened the small blind to 400,000 pre-flop, with Cheong calling from the big blind. Both players checked the {9-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} flop and the {4-Diamonds} turn. At the river, LeFrancois checked a third time. Cheong finally pulled the trigger with a bet of 1.1 million that LeFrancois called. We never saw LeFrancois' cards. He mucked upon being shown Cheong's {k-Diamonds}{j-Spades}, a king-high flush.

LeFrancois is down to about 17.9 million. Cheong is re-building and has roughly 14.3 million.
