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

Hand #215: Cheong Doubles Back

Jonathan Duhamel has the button.

He raises to 3 million, and Joseph Cheong moves all in for 6.75 million. Duhamel wastes no time matching the bet, and he has Joseph Cheong's tournament life in his hands:

Cheong: {3-Spades} {7-Clubs}
Duhamel: {K-Diamonds} {9-Clubs}

The dealer burns a card and turns three, flipping them over to reveal the {K-Spades} right in the windown. The full flop rolls out {3-Clubs} {J-Diamonds} {K-Spades}, though, giving Cheong some life as he finds his pair as well.

Turn: {3-Hearts}. Bink!, as they say in the parlance of our times.

River: {A-Hearts}. That's safe for Cheong's bid to double up, and he's not going anywhere just yet. Mark him down for more than 14 million again.
