Sitepu Sends Cheong to the Rail

Chad_Holloway • Level 18: 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante
Joseph Cheong

Joseph Cheong got his last 70,000 all in preflop from the hijack and Sandhy Sitepu isolated by jamming all in over the top for around 140,000 from the cutoff. The button and blinds all got out of the way and the hands were turned up.

Sandhy Sitepu: {a-Spades}{10-Clubs}
Joseph Cheong: {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}

Cheong was looking to hold to stay alive, but that proved easier said than done as the {k-Spades}{a-Hearts}{8-Diamonds} flop paired Sitepu. Neither the {a-Diamonds} turn nor {6-Spades} river helped Cheong and he was eliminated in 171st place for $7,860.
