Joe Cheong returned from break and found quick relief. He was all in against Zach Donovan with versus and doubled after he flopped a nine and rivered the case nine.
Then he tried again.
After Scott Margereson opened to 100,000 from the hijack, Cheong moved his new 1,000,000 stack in the middle from the big blind and Margereson called.
This time it was Margereson with the nines and Cheong was racing. He missed the flop but picked up a flush draw/gutshot wheel draw on the turn. Cheong blanked the river to go out in eleventh place.
One more elimination and they will form the final table nine.
Scott Margereson – 9,400,000 (188 bb)
Joseph Cheong – Eliminated in 11th place ($54,139)
