Event #16: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em

Nguyen Spikes River to Double

Josh_Cahlik • Level 3: 25,000-50,000, 0 ante

Hand #22: Mark Radoja had the button. He opened to 80,000. Don Nguyen announced all in for 805,000 and Radoja announced a call.

Radoja: {A-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}
Nguyen: {A-Spades}{3-Diamonds}

Nguyen was crushed but after the {7-Spades}{J-Diamonds}{K-Hearts}, it was looking likely that the two would chop the pot. The {9-Spades} hit fourth street and Nguyen found his miracle trey on the river when the {3-Clubs} slammed down on the felt, prompting gasps from Radoja's rail. Nguyen was able to double up and now has taken the lead in the match. Neither player has cashed in a lammer yet.
