Big Double Up For Cheong Through Karr

McLean Karr and Joseph Cheong just clashed in a big pot which gave the latter some serious ammunition for a very deep run. We arrived on the scene when Cheong, who was out of position, had 7,400 invested into the pot. Karr had 2,900 in front of him, and he eventually made the call.

The flop brought out {2-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{4-Clubs} and Cheong fired out 5,675. Karr played with some chips, and put together a raise to 16,675. Cheong made the call.

On the turn the {4-Spades} showed up and Cheong quickly checked. Karr grabbed his eight gray 5,000 chips and put Cheong all in. He called immediately and turned over {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}.

"Oh, you flopped the nut flush," Karr sighed as he flipped up his {J-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}. The river was the {3-Hearts} and Cheong doubled up. Karr was left behind with little chips and will have to start a serious comeback.
