Troyanovskiy Gets It in Good, But Cheong Gets Lucky

Vladimir Troyanovskiy

Vladimir Troyanovskiy opened for 17,000 from the hijack and received a call from Christopher Brammer in the cutoff. Joseph Cheong then three-bet to 64,000 from the small blind, Troyanovskiy four-bet to 128,000, Brammer folded, and Cheong five-bet all in. Troyanovskiy called off his remaining 120,000 and was in a dominating spot.

Showdown
Troyanovskiy: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}
Cheong: {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}

Troyanovskiy seemed happy with the spot, but not after the {Q-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds} flop gave Cheong a flush draw. Troyanovskiy stood from his chair and watched the dealer burn and turn the {A-Clubs}, a safe card. Troyanovskiy managed to avoid a diamond on the river as well, but unfortunately for him the {9-Hearts} spiked, giving Cheong trips and the win. Troyanovskiy was clearly disappointed and silently made his way to the payout desk in 27th place for €22,982.
