Kenny Nguyen
Kenny Nguyen

Tamer Alkamli raised to 50,000 from middle position and was called by Kenny Nguyen in the big blind.

The flop came out {j-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{q-Clubs}, and Nguyen checked to Alkamli, who bet 40,000. Nguyen quickly raised to 80,000.

Alkamli went all-in to put Nguyen at risk, and he quickly called, saying "let's gamble" laughing.

Kenny Nguyen: {q-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}
Tamer Alkamli: {q-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}

Alkamli said, "gamble?" looking at Nguyen's flopped two-pair, and the rest of the board would run out {4-Hearts}{5-Hearts} to double up Nguyen.
