Event #53: $800 No-Limit Hold'em Deepstack
Days: 1

Cheong Chips Up to 400k

Level 16 : 2,500-5,000, 5,000 ante

Fresh off of his bracelet win in the $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em Double Stack, just four days go, Joseph Cheong has built a formidable Day 1 stack.

His latest pot came in a hand on the big blind, with the small blind completing and Cheong checking. The flop came {2-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}, and the small blind bet 10,000, with Cheong calling.

The turn came the {a-Clubs}, the small blind fired again for 16,000, and Cheong made his move, raising to 45,000. The small blind quickly folded, and the recent bracelet winner Cheong is up to 400,000.
