Cheong Cracks Aces

BrandonBloom • Level 10: Blinds 1,000-1,500, 1,500 ante

With 10,000 in the pot on a {q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{6-Diamonds} flop, Joseph Cheong checked the hijack and the cutoff bet 3,000. Cheong check-raised to 8,000 and his opponent continued.

The {9-Diamonds} landed on the turn and Cheong tossed in enough chips to cover his opponent's roughly 15,000 behind. His opponent called.

Opponent: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}
Joseph Cheong: {k-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

The {a-Spades} river failed to improve the aces to a flush, and Cheong claimed the pot with his straight.
