Cheong Takes On Alvarado

Joseph Cheong & JC Alvarado

Action folded around to Joseph Cheong in the cutoff and he promptly raised to 700. JC Alvarado called from the button, both blinds folded, and it was heads up to the {9-Clubs}{Q-Spades}{3-Spades} flop. Cheong, who doesn't waste time, quickly bet 1,100, Alvarado called, and the {2-Diamonds} turned.

This time Cheong checked, but he called when Alvarado bet 2,500. The {7-Spades} river saw Cheong check for a second time, and then he promptly folded when Alvarado fired out a big bet of 14,500.

Despite losing that hand, Cheong is still up considerably from the last time we checked in with him.
