Cheong and Alvarado Tangle Again


Joseph Cheong opened to 700 from middle position, JC Alvarado three-bet to 2,200 on his direct left, and the action folded back to Cheong, who called.

The flop fell {5-Spades}{8-Spades}{9-Spades}, and both players checked. The turn was the {q-Clubs}, Cheong led for 3,200, and Alvarado called.

The {2-Hearts} completed the board, and Cheong tossed out a single blue T5,000 chip. Alvarado called.

"Ace-high," Cheong sighed.

Alvarado flipped over {q-Diamonds}{10-Clubs} for a pair of queens, and won the pot.
