Don Nguyen is Winning Early in the Finals

Hand #59: Radoja opened for 160,000 and Nguyen shipped for the rest of his stack, forcing Radoja all-in if he elected to call. Holding {9-Spades}{9-Diamonds}, Radoja did just that, and he was in great shape to double through against Nguyen's {K-Clubs}{6-Hearts}.

Flop: {q-Clubs}{6-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}

"The six is alright," Radoja said, knowing that he had dodged the most dangerous part of the board.

Turn: {K-Spades}

With that, Nguyen's gin card had arrived, and he was now one card away from felting Radoja and forcing him to cash in his last 1.2 million chip lammer.

River: {8-Spades}

It looked suspiciously like the nine Radoja needed, but the river card was a blank and Nguyen smiled as he stacked the rest of Radoja's second bullet.
