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

Cheong Trying to Flex His Muscles


Tight, tight, tight. We're still seeing flops at the outer table but one bet is taking down the pot. Joseph Cheong seems to be trying to use the bubble to his advantage. First he led into pre-flop raiser John Dolan on a board of {k-Spades}{j-Spades}{8-Spades} and took down the pot. Then a few hands later Cheong raised the small blind and was called by big blind Filippo Candio. Both players checked the {10-Hearts}{5-Spades}{3-Spades} flop, but Cheong took down the pot on the {7-Hearts} turn with a bet of 625,000.

Cheong now has about 25.2 million.
