Friedman Coolers Nguyen in Biggest Pot of Tournament Thus Far
Level 18 : 5,000-10,000, 10,000 ante
Luke Nguyen opened for 24,000 under the gun and three-time WSOP bracelet winner Adam Friedman three-bet to 35,000 next to act.
Action folded back to Nguyen and he four-bet to 185,000, which prompted Friedman to five-bet jam. Nguyen had 510,000 total and called off only to discover he was on the bad end of a cooler.
Nguyen was looking to get lucky, but that didn't happen as the board ran out clean to send him to the rail in 44th place for $3,009. Meanwhile, Friedman collected the biggest pot of the tournament thus far.
