Joseph Cheong Eliminated by Martin Zentner
Level 7: 250-500, 50 ante
We missed the action, but the table kindly filled us in on how Joseph Cheong went from one of the big stacks to out. After dropping a big pot when his aces were cracked, Cheong lost the rest of his stack after a big altercation with Martin Zentner.
According to the table, Cheong raised from early position and Zentner called from middle position. The flop fell A-K-4 rainbow, Cheong bet 1,750 and Zentner called.
The turn brought a queen and Cheong bet 4,075. Zentner called again and the river brought a six. Cheong made a big bet of 20,100 and Zentner quickly announced he was all-in. Cheong snap-called and tried to muck his hand when Zentner showed J-10 for a turned Broadway straight. Cheong mucked and quietly made his exit, while Zentner raked in the pot and jumped up to 148,000 chips.
