Abrams Eliminates Nguyen

Shamus • Level 18
Scotty Nguyen


Shortly after Benjamin Dobson fell in 22nd place to Greg Raymer in a hand of 2-7 Triple Draw, Scotty Nguyen was eliminated in 21st after losing the last of his stack in a stud-8 hand to Scott Abrams.

In Nguyen's last hand, he and Abrams had made it to fifth street with Abrams betting out and Nguyen calling, then the pair followed the same pattern on sixth.

Abrams: ({x-}{x-}) / {K-Spades}{2-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}
Nguyen: ({x-}{x-}) / {5-Hearts}{2-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}

Abrams bet dark before seventh street was dealt, and when Nguyen checked his final card he pushed in the last of his chips as a call. Abrams tabled {K-Hearts}{4-Spades}{3-Hearts} for kings and fours, while Nguyen showed {5-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{3-Clubs} for a lesser two pair and what appeared a busted flush draw.

Nguyen is out, and right now Abrams leads the 20 players who remain.
