Cheong in the Black


Joseph Cheong is in profit despite just losing a pot.

He was in the small blind and we caught up with the hand when he drew one the second time and then check-called a 400 bet. His opponent had stood pat and did the same as Cheong drew one more. Both players checked the third round of betting and Cheong said, "King". His opponent opened {8-}{4-}{5-}{7-}{9-} and Cheong's cards hit the muck.

Richard Ashby got the better of Michael Binger in a battle of the blinds.

Ashby limp-called a Binger raise before he drew two cards to Binger's one.

Binger bet 200 when checked to him and called when check-raised to 400. Ashby stood pat and and Binger drew two more. Ashby led for 200 and was called. He stood pat again as Binger drew one and both players checked.

Ashby opened {9-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Spades}. Binger stared at his holding but the cards didn't change, and he mucked.
