Hand #147: Joseph Cheong raises to 700,000 on the button and Adedapo Ajayi calls in the small blind. From the big blind, Geoffrey Hum three-bets to 2,800,000.

Cheong responds by moving all in for 8,550,000 total, and after Ajayi folds, Hum calls.

Hum: Diamond 8Heart 8
Cheong: Spade JHeart J

Cheong is at risk but in the lead with his bigger pocket pair, but when the dealer spreads the Spade 8Heart 2Diamond 10 flop, Hum is thrust into the lead.

The Spade 10 on the turn now gives Cheong outs to both a jack and ten, but when the Spade 5 completes the board on the river, Cheong is eliminated in third place for a CA$235,290 payday.

Geoffrey Hum – 26,150,000
Adedapo Ajayi – 18,150,000
Joseph Cheong – Eliminated in 3rd Place (CA$235,290)
