Ari Engel Doubles Through Joseph Cheong

zedmaster84 • Level 26: 30,000-60,000, 10,000 ante

On the button, Joseph Cheong raised to 125,000 and Ari Engel announced all in from the small blind. Oleksii Khoroshenin folded in the big blind and Cheong asked "can I get a count please?" Once it was determined to be 1,585,000, Cheong called.

Engel: {A-Hearts}{8-Spades}
Cheong: {K-Clubs}{J-Hearts}

The flop of {K-Spades}{9-Spades}{6-Spades} gave Cheong top pair, but Engel picked up a flush draw. After the {7-Hearts} turn, the 2016 Aussie Millions Main Event champion also had a straight draw. Instead, it was the {A-Diamonds} river that kept Engel in the event and put a dent into the big stack of Cheong.

Ari Engel ca 3,250,000 1,825,000
Joseph Cheong us 3,100,000 -1,550,000
