Event #54: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Kenny Nguyen-ing


World Series of Poker Circuit Harrah's Chester Main Event winner Kenny Nguyen raised to 550 from the hijack, which cleared the field all the way to the big blind. A three-bet to 1,300 was made, Nguyen called, and the flop came down {2-Clubs}{9-Hearts}{J-Spades}.

The big blind simply moved all in and Nguyen snap-called off his stack of 2,900.

Nguyen: {A-Spades}{J-Diamonds}
Big Blind: {K-Hearts}{Q-Clubs}

Nguyen was ahead and looking to dodge a king, queen, or ten. The {6-Hearts} turn was safe enough, leaving Nguyen with just one card to sweat. The dealer burned and slowly revealed the {6-Diamonds}. Nguyen's hand held and he let a little smile creep across his face. Nguyen is up to 8,650.
