Joseph Cheong Eliminated In 7th Place (HKD$ 1,080,000)

Yardley • Level 25: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante
Joseph Cheong - 7th Place

Joseph Cheong opened under the gun for 54,000 and Sunny Jung made it 150,000 from the button. The blinds folded and Cheong made the call.

The flop was {3-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{k-Clubs} and Cheong check-called a bet of 180,000. The turn card was the {2-Diamonds} and once again Cheong checked and then faced a bet of 325,000 from Jung.

Cheong went deep in the tank. Close to five minutes ticked by as Cheong decided what to do. His decision in the end was to move all in. Jung checked his hole cards to make sure and called.

Cheong: {k-Spades}{j-Spades}
Jung: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}.

Cheong would need a king or a jack to survive but the river card was the {q-Clubs} to award Jung a huge pot and eliminate Cheong in seventh place.
