Plausinaitis Dominates Three-Handed Play

zedmaster84 • Nível 32: 1,500,000-3,000,000, 350,000 ante

Paulius Plausinaitis came out storming in three-handed play and took a ton of chips from Joseph Cheong. Most of the hands ended without showdown but one of them saw Cheong lead the {8-Clubs}{6-Clubs}{3-Clubs}{5-Spades} turn for 3 million and earned a call. Cheong bet the {8-Spades} river for 3 million and Plausinaitis called with {a-Spades}{j-Clubs} to beat the {q-Spades}{9-Spades} of Cheong.

One further hand went to the river, all other hands ended on the flop or preflop, mostly in favor of Plausinaitis.

"likeboy": {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}
Joseph Cheong: {q-Clubs}{j-Spades}

Cheong found a magic flop of {q-Diamonds}{q-Spades}{j-Hearts} and the {k-Hearts} turn as well as the {6-Diamonds} river were a formality. "likeboy" departed in 4th place and takes home $519,134.

The hand of the Finn was dominated and he only spiked a gutshot until the {q-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}{9-Spades} turn. However, the {q-Diamonds} river was a blank and Jouhkimainen had to settle for 5th place and a payday of $389,295.

Joseph Cheong raise-folded to a three-bet by chip leader Paulius Plausinaitis and then engaged in a limped pot with "turkey1". The {j-Spades}{10-Spades}{10-Clubs} flop was checked and "turkey1" led the {3-Diamonds} turn for 2.5 million, Cheong raised to 7.5 million and earned a call.

On the {7-Diamonds} river, "turkey1" check-called for 18.06 million and their {q-Hearts}{7-Hearts} was no good as Cheong had the superior {k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}.

Paulius Plausinaitis pulled further ahead at the top of the leaderboard while small pots only took place for two orbits. Joseph Cheong then limped the small blind and Plausinaitis checked. On the {10-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} flop, Cheong check-called a min-bet and that was all the betting action anymore.

They checked the {6-Clubs} turn and {k-Spades} river, and Cheong won he pot with {a-Spades}{7-Clubs} versus {q-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}.

Paulius Plausinaitis won two pots followed by one pot being shipped to Joseph Cheong. It was then Cheong who opened to 5 million and picked up calls by Plausinaitis and "turkey1" in the big blind. The trio checked the {j-Hearts}{7-Spades}{3-Clubs} flop and "turkey1" check-folded the {a-Hearts} turn, as Cheong bet 14,910,000 and Plausinaitis called.

On the {7-Diamonds} river, Cheong checked and Plausinaitis bet 27,833,600 to win the pot without showdown.

Cheong Chips Up With Aggression

zedmaster84 • Nível 31: 1,250,000-2,500,000, 300,000 ante

Joseph Cheong limp-called a raise to 7 million by Paulius Plausinaitis in a battle of the blinds to then bet the {9-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{a-Spades}{5-Spades} river succesfully. Plausinaitis open-jammed the next small blind and "likeboy" quickly ducked out of the way in the big blind.

Cheong min-raised to 5 million in the first hand of the new level and Joni Jouhkimainen made the call. The {5-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} flop was check-called by Jouhkimainen for 3,952,500 and the {9-Clubs} turn was checked by both. On the {j-Spades} river, Jouhkimainen checked once more and Cheong bet 11,175,100 into 20,655,000.

Jouhkimainen gave it some consideration and eventually folded.
