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

Hand #118: Joseph Cheong


John Dolan has the button in Seat 3.

Joseph Cheong is first into the pot with a minimum-raise to 2 million. Michael Mizrachi, the big blind is the only caller.

Both players check a flop of {10-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{9-Hearts}. When the turn comes the third heart, {k-Hearts}, Mizrachi bets 3 million. Cheong calls to the {9-Clubs} river, a card that both players check. At showdown Cheong takes the pot with {a-Clubs}{j-Hearts}, playing the board pair of 9s with ace-high. Mizrachi does not show.
