Event 6: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Mixed-Max

Cheong and the Ladies

From the button, Fabrizio Baldassari raised to 10,000, and Joseph Cheong three-bet to 24,000. The call came, and off they went.

The board ended up running out {3-Clubs} {4-Clubs} {2-Spades} {9-Diamonds} {2-Diamonds} with Cheong getting chips in on each of the three betting streets. It was 30,000 on the flop, 55,500 on the turn, and 115,000 on the river. Baldassari paid him off all the way to the end, and Cheong tabled {Q-Clubs} {Q-Spades}. Queens up were good, and that pot has turned the tides in the match.

Cheong now holds a 3:2 chip lead of his own after beginning the match at a small deficit.
