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

Cheong Still on the Ascent


Joseph Cheong has done a great job chipping up all day. On the bubble of the November Nine, he's at it again. Sitting in the big blind, he called a raise to 675,000 made by button-player Soi Nguyen. Cheong checked a flop of {5-Clubs}{k-Clubs}{j-Diamonds} to Nguyen. Nguyen bet 900,000. After a few momements, Cheong check-raised that bet to 2.25 million. There was no further action; Nguyen folded and Cheong collected the pot.
