Ben Yu Dodges Big Draw to Double Through Scotty Nguyen

Chad_Holloway • Level 31: 150,000-300,000, 0 ante

Scotty Nguyen raised to 800,000 on the button and Ben Yu called from the big blind. Yu checked the {3-Spades}{q-Hearts}{5-Spades} flop and Nguyen bet 800,000. Yu check-raised the pot to 4.15 million and then called off for 1.3 million more when Nguyen popped it.

Nguyen: {9-Diamonds}{9-Spades}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds}
Yu: {q-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}{j-Hearts}{3-Hearts}

Yu flopped two pair while Nguyen had both straight and flush draws. The {8-Diamonds} turn gave Nguyen a few more outs, but he missed when the {10-Clubs} bricked the river.
