Chad_Holloway • Level 19: 4,000-8,000, 2,000 ante
Joseph Cheong - 2nd Place

Hand #77: Joseph Cheong raised to 24,000 and then called off for 215,000 total when Steven Wolansky moved all in from the big blind.

Wolansky drew one and Cheong stood pat with {10-}{7-}{6-}{3-}{2-}. Wolansky showed that he was drawing to {8-}{7-}{5-}{2-}.

Wolansky squeezed out his card. "It's four across," he said. "Spade."

He then showed the {9-Spades} for a winning {9-}{8-}{7-}{5-}{2-} low. Cheong fell just short of his first bracelet and will have to settle for a $55,309 consolation prize.
