Event #2: $25,000 Mixed-Max No-Limit Hold'em

Cheong Counterfeits Steven

Brandon Steven

Brandon Steven checked to Joseph Cheong on a flop of {7-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}{10-Spades}, and the 2010 November Niner bet 3,000. Steven check-raised to 10,000, Cheong moved all in for around 20,000 more, and Steven snap-called.

Cheong: {9-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}
Steven: {8-Spades}{7-Clubs}

The {10-Diamonds} on the turn gave Cheong a better two pair - tens and nines - and an open-ended straight flush draw. Steven could still double through with an eight or a seven on the river, but the {k-Clubs} completed the board.

"Good game, Brandon," Cheong said to the 2010 WSOP Main Event final table bubble boy.

Steven wished the table good luck, then exited the Amazon Room.
