Cheong Calls Down Boucher's Bluff


Picking up the action on the turn with the board reading {9-Spades}{8-Spades}{4-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}, former World Series of Poker November Niner Joseph Cheong checked to 2011 WSOP Europe bracelet winner Philippe Boucher. Boucher fired 16,500, and Cheong made the call.

The {2-Clubs} landed on the river, and Cheong passed the action to his opponent once more. Boucher tossed out 24,000, but Cheong stuck with him and made the call.

Upon seeing Cheong called, Boucher said, "You got it," and tossed over the {K-Clubs}{J-Hearts}. Cheong showed the {J-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for a pair of eights, and he won the pot.
