Cheong's Kings

Joeseph Cheong

A player raised from early position to 2,000 preflop, and action found its way to Joseph Cheong in middle position and he raised it up to 4,900. The table folded back around to the initial raiser and he made the call.

Both players were witness to the {j-Spades}{8-Spades}{8-Clubs} flop. We don't know how the action went exactly, but Cheong's short stacked opponent managed to get all in and at risk by Cheong. Cards were tabled, and both players got to see where they stood.

Cheong: {K-Clubs}{k-Hearts}
Opponent: {A-Clubs}{j-Hearts}

Cheong held the best of it with his superior pair of kings, while his opponent held a pair of jacks with an ace kicker. Anything can happen though, as there were still two cards to be exposed.

The dealer then plopped down the {10-Spades} on the turn, changing nothing. Finally the {7-Clubs} fell for the river and Cheong's opponent was sent home. Cheong now sits on a very healthy stack of around 185,000.
