Beware of Cheung


Liv Boeree opened for 4,500 under the gun and received a call from October Niner Jesse Sylvia, who had chipped up considerably since the last time we check in with him. Fung Cheung, who had just moved from another table a few hands before, then came in with a three-bet to 20,000 from the small blind.

As the big blind was considering his action, another player started chatting up Cheung, who has been known to hang out with Phil Ivey. When asked where she learned to play poker, Cheung simply said, "Macau." When asked for how long, she whispered, "Long time."

The Macau games are the stuff of legends in the poker world, and it's possible the other players found the newly revealed information a bit intimidating as one by one they folded. Appropriately, Cheung revealed {A-Spades}{A-Clubs} before sending her cards to the muck.
