Event #37: $1,500 MILLIONAIRE MAKER No-Limit Hold'em

Cheong Cannot Find a Fold

Cottrellmkw • Level 9: 600-1,200, 1,200 ante
Joseph Cheong

A player raised from late position and was only called by Joseph Cheong in the big blind.

On a flop of {8-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{10-Spades} Cheong checked to his opponent, who led out for 4,000. Cheong, far from deterred by the continuation, responded with a raise to 11,000. His opponent made the call to send the two players to the turn.

Both players checked through the {6-Hearts} turn and Cheong checked for a third time after the {2-Diamonds} river. His opponent was not prepared to go to a cheap showdown, instead betting out 11,000. Cheong went into the tank but seemed unable to let go of his hand, eventually tossing in calling chips. He was shown {k-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}, a hand he could not beat, putting a mild dent in his still large stack.
