Joseph Cheong

On the turn with a board of Jh5h2h3c, Joseph Cheong bet 6,500 from the small blind and Danny Shiff called from the big blind. The hijack folded and the player on the button moved all in for 41,600.

Cheong called and was all in for 32,800. Shiff got a count on both stacks, took a minute of thought and then called.

The hijack showed AcJd, Shiff tabled KhJs and Cheong was in the lead with 2s2c.

The river was the 3h. Cheong improved to a full house to triple up, while Shiff won a small side pot to eliminate the button.

Joseph Cheong – 110,000
Danny Shiff – 96,000
