Joseph Cheong Eliminated in 15th Place ($43,095)

Joseph Cheong - 15th place

Daniel Perper opened to 42,000 from early position and action folded around to Joseph Cheong in the small blind, who announced he was all in for about 440,000 total. Directly behind him in the big, Kyle Julius also announced he was all in. Perper tanked, but eventually decided to fold and hands between Cheong and Julius were revealed.

Cheong: {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs}
Julius: {10-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}

The {9-Diamonds}{A-Diamonds}{7-Hearts} flop looked good for Cheong, however, the {6-Spades} turn and {8-Clubs} river would give Julius a runner-runner straight for the knockout blow.

Julius is hovering right around 2 million following the elimination.
