Hands #15-18: Chong Applies Pressure to Nguyen

ajlamers • Level 37: 200,000-400,000, 50,000 ante

Hand #15: Tommy Nguyen opened to 800,000 on the button and Francis Rusnak shipped all in for 4,600,000 in the big blind. Nguyen thought for a minute but decided to lay his hand down.

Hand #16: Chris Chong raised to 825,000 from under the gun and the rest of the table folded.

Hand #17: Nguyen made it 800,000 to go from the hijack and Chong defended from the big blind. The flop came {10-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{6-Clubs} and Chong checked to Nguyen who continued for 1,000,000. Chong check-raised to 3,000,000 and Nguyen made the call.

The turn brought the {q-Hearts} and both players checked to the {8-Diamonds} on the river. Chong thought for a minute and then announced all in, putting Nguyen to the test for his remaining 5,800,000 chips. Nguyen spent some time in the tank but eventually tossed his cards to the muck.

Hand #18: Michael Benko raised to 850,000 from the hijack and picked up the blinds and antes.
