Hand #3: Joseph Cheong Takes a Chunk from Matthew Jarvis


Joseph Cheong has the button in Seat 2.

Matthew Jarvis opens to 1.175 million from early position. Joseph Cheong reraises from the button to 2.675 million and action folds back around to the original raiser Jarvis. He makes the call and the flop comes down {10-Hearts}{5-Clubs}{2-Clubs} and Jarvis is to act first.

Jarvis checks to Cheong, he checks behind to see the {7-Diamonds} come down on the turn. Jarvis takes his time on fourth street before he slides out a bet of three million even. Cheong makes the call.

The {8-Clubs} is the river card. Jarvis takes his time once again. He fires out two tall stacks of chips with some extra on top for a total of 4.275 million. Cheong pauses for a few moments and then announces that he is all in, drawing a massive uproar of cheers from the audience. Jarvis doesn't snap call, but rather maintains the same pose he has been the entire hand. After a couple of moments, he mucks his hand and Cheong is awarded the pot.

Jarvis is knocked down to 7.8 million while Cheong rises to 33.775 million.
