Cheong On The Comeback


Joseph Cheong had the button and slid out a min-raise. Sergii Baranov called from the big blind.

The flop was {K-Clubs}{5-Spades}{8-Spades} and Baranov fired 90,000. Cheong flat called and the {4-Clubs} rolled off on the turn. Baranov bet out again, this time making it 180,000. Cheong stuck around and the {9-Hearts} hit the river.

Baranov slowed down on the final street by checking his option, prompting Cheong to bet 445,000. Baranov quickly called but mucked his cards when Cheong showed {7-Clubs}{6-Clubs} for the nut straight. Cheong is now back up to about 2.405 million in chips.
