Cheng-A-June Busts Mellion
$1,150 TKPT Main Event Day 1c 39/42
Level 3: 75-150
Joining the action on a raise to 600 in the hijack and a call by Christophe Enrici on the button, it was Ricardo Cheng-A-June in the small blind on his second bullet who raised to 2,100. Only Mellion called and then faced a bet worth 4,000 on the 10c5s3d flop. Mellion called, before doing so again for 8,000 on the 2h turn.
That left Mellion with 10,525 behind and Cheng-A-June instantly shoved the 5d river. Mellion took his time before calling it off, and then mucked his cards when he was shown AsAc. The dealer obliged to the all in showdown and turned over Mellion’s QsQh before the Frenchman departed. Cheng-A-June moved up to more than 55,000.
