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

Cheong Can't Stand Much Pressure


Joseph Cheong started things off with an under-the-gun-raise to 950,000. Only Michael Mizrachi, in position behind Cheong, called. On an all-trey flop, {3-Spades}{3-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}, Cheong led out for 1.425 million. Mizrachi raised to 4 million and ended the hand as Cheong folded. Mizrachi flashed pocket kings.

MOC Robbie Thompason announced Mizrachi's count as more than 18 million, drawing tons of applause from the rail.
