Sam Stein started the hand by opening to 34,000 from the button and Huy Nguyen raised to 78,000. Andy Hwang took his time in the big blind and four-bet to 181,000. Stein folded quickly and Nguyen shoved. Hwang called and the hands were tabled.

Nguyen: {10-Diamonds} {10-Clubs}
Hwang: {A-Clubs} {A-Diamonds}

The flop came {K-Clubs} {A-Hearts} {5-Spades} and Hwang had a huge lead with a set of aces. The turn came {Q-Diamonds} giving Nguyen a slim chance to draw to a straight. Then river card peeled off as {J-Diamonds} giving Nguyen Broadway.

Nguyen and Hwang are virtually even after the hand.
