Cheong Busts Pergolizzi

Joseph Cheong

We found the Joseph Cheong and Axel Pergolizzi looking at a board of {7-Hearts}{7-Spades}{2-Hearts}{10-Spades}{4-Diamonds}. Pergolizzi announced that he was all in for his last 198,000 and Cheong pondered his action.

Cheong shook his head as if he did not like the situation, but eventually verbalized a call.

Pergolizzi turned up {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} for king-high. Cheong showed {A-Spades}{10-Diamonds} for tens and sevens with an ace kicker. Pergolizzi quickly stood up from the table and walked away while Cheong added to his massive chip stack. This win puts Cheong in second place in the chip counts.
