Baranov Rivers Nuts; Takes Over One Million From Cheong


Joseph Cheong raised to 65,000 from the cutoff and it folded to Sergii Baranov who called from the big blind.

The flop came {J-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{4-Hearts} and Baranov led into Cheong for 75,000. Cheong called and the {K-Spades} came on fourth street. Baranov checked and Cheong fired 145,000. Baranov called and the {8-Spades} finished the board.

Baranov checked for a second time and Cheong fired 375,000. Baranov would not be swayed, however, as he moved 1,075,000 into the middle.

"I call," said Cheong.

Baranov showed {7-Spades}{5-Spades} for the nuts and Cheong mucked his hand. Baranov is now sitting on 4.845 million while Cheong has fallen to 1.95 million.
