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

Dolan Gets the Best of Cheong

Win some, lose some for Joseph Cheong.

The players are jockeying for chip position now as we make the final push to the November Nine. Joseph Cheong and John Dolan are roughly level at 11.5 million each after a pot the two just played. Dolan opened for 500,000 pre-flop from late position and was called by Cheong from the small blind. Both players checked a queen-high flop, {q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{4-Diamonds}.

Cheong led out for 635,000 on the {3-Diamonds} turn, with Dolan calling in position behind him. Cheong almost doubled the bet on the river {k-Diamonds}, firing 1.125 million into the pot. Dolan called again with a rivered two pair, {k-Hearts}{j-Spades}. Cheong just mucked his hand.
