We caught up with the action just as the dealer was scooping the preflop pot into the middle. It appeared that Percy Mahatan opened from early position and was three-bet by Joseph Cheong on the button. Everyone folded back to Mahatan, who made the call.
The flop came and Mahatan checked to Cheong, who fired 60,000 into the middle. Mahatan quickly slid his hand into the muck and Cheong scooped the pot.
Cheong is up to 1.5 million in the early going.
