Event 6: $5,000 No-Limit Hold'em Mixed-Max

Match 2: Cheong Flops Two Pair, Takes Massive Lead

[user101598] • Level 19: 3,000-6,000, 1,000 ante
Joseph Cheong takes a big lead.

Hugo Lemaire had the button and opened to 15,000. Joseph Cheong called.

The flop fell {3-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{k-Hearts}, and Cheong checked. Lemaire fired 14,000, Cheong check-raised to 51,000, and Lemaire called. The turn was the {10-Spades}, and Cheong led for 77,000. Lemaire tank-called.

The {8-Spades} completed the board, and Cheong tossed out 156,000. Lemaire tanked for nearly a minute, staring at both Cheong and the board, before he finally called.

"Two pair," Cheong said, tabling {k-Spades}{3-Clubs}.

Lemaire unhappily mucked, and Cheong now has a massive lead.
