Cheong Doubles Through Adams; Doubles Again Moments Later

Joseph Cheong Doubles

Joseph Cheong raised to 1,000 from middle position. Big stack Brandon Adams called from the cutoff and the rest of the table folded.

The flop fell {4-Spades}{5-Clubs}{4-Clubs} and Cheong continued with a 1,475 bet. Adams called and the {6-Diamonds} turned. Cheong fired another bullet making it 3,500 to go. Once again he received a call from Adams.

The board completed with a second pair in the form of the {6-Spades}. Cheong moved all in for his last 16,500. Adams dipped into his stack and came out with a call.

Cheong tabled {J-Hearts}{J-Clubs} and Adam looked at his cards one last time, hoping that they would be able to beat the pocket jacks. Alas, they did not, and he meekly pushed them to the muck.

Adams' massive lost some but is still sitting at a sizable 115,000. Cheong's double put him at 41,000.

Just moments after that last hand Cheong tweeted that he was able to double up again:
