Nguyen in Trouble


Scotty Nguyen{x-}{x-} / {Q-Spades}{10-Spades}{4-Spades}{5-Clubs}{x-}
Miguel Rodriguez Bermude{x-}{x-} / {7-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{2-Spades}{K-Hearts}{x-}

We just caught the action on fourth street with Nguyen in the betting lead with the high hand. Nguyen bet 600 and Miguel Rodriguez Bermude called. On fifth street Bermude paired up and got the betting lead. He threw out 1,200 and Nguyen quickly called.

On sixth and seventh street Bermude bet again and Nguyen called twice.

"Flush," Bermude announced after which he turned over {A-Hearts}{9-Hearts}{J-Clubs}. Nguyen glanced over at his opponent's cards and mucked his own. Nguyen is really short now and looking for a quick double up.
