Event 13: $1,500 Limit Hold'em

Two For Cheong

• Taso 3: 100-200, 0 ante

When we reached Joseph Cheong's table, he was in a pot with two opponents, and the flop was {10-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}. The action checked to Cheong, who bet, and both opponents called. The turn was another five - the {5-Clubs} - and the action checked to Cheong who bet again. This time, only one player called.

The {9-Spades} completed the board, and Cheong fired one last barrel. His opponent called, and Cheong confidently turned over {k-Clubs}{10-Spades}.

"It's good," his opponent muttered.

The next hand, three bets went in preflop, and Cheong was heads up with the player on his direct right. The dealer fanned {9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}, and Cheong's opponent led out. Cheong raised, his opponent put in a third bet, and Cheong called. The turn was the {6-Hearts}, and Cheong's opponent led again. Cheong raised, and his opponent just called.

The {6-Diamonds} completed the board, and for the first time, Cheong's opponent checked. Cheong tossed out a bet, and his opponent called. Cheong rolled over {k-Spades}{9-Spades} for nines and sixes, and his opponent flashed {8-}{8-} before mucking.
