Event #2: $25,000 Mixed-Max No-Limit Hold'em

Cheong Gone

[user101598] • Level 14: 2,500-5,000, 500 ante
Joseph Cheong (Day 1) - Eliminated

Ami Barer raised to 10,000 in the hijack, Matt Giannetti called in the cutoff and Joseph Cheong moved all in for 83,500 in the small blind. Barer folded and Giannetti called.

Giannetti: {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}
Cheong: {q-Spades}{j-Spades}

Giannetti was ahead and increased his lead on a flop of {a-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{4-Clubs}. The {k-Clubs} on the turn kept Cheong alive - any {10-} on the river would give him Broadway - but the {k-Spades} on the river was a brick.
