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

Hand #127: Joseph Cheong and Michael Mizrachi


John Racener has the button in Seat 7.

Michael Mizrachi moves first, raising to 2.5 million from one off the button. Big blind Joseph Cheong is the only caller to a flop of {2-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{2-Spades}. Both players check.

The turn is the {6-Spades}. Cheong leads out for 2.5 million, just less than half the pot. Mizrachi isn't deterred. He calls to the {8-Diamonds} river, which puts two pair on board. Both players check. Cheong shows {a-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}, playing eights and deuces with an ace. Mizrachi shows the same hand when he tables {a-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. It's the first chopped pot of the day.
