jeffmcmillan • Level 1: 100-200, 200 ante
Qui Nguyen

The 2016 Main Event champion Qui Nguyen was spotted in a hand with the board reading {4-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{8-Hearts}{q-Spades}.

Marcelo Tadeu Aziz Junior bet 5,500 from the button and Qui Nguyen called from the hijack.

The river came the {10-Clubs} and Nguyen threw out a bet of 20,000 into a pot of about 22,000. Tadeu Aziz Junior thought for quite a while before announcing he was all in, Nguyen snap-called.

Tadeu Aziz Junior tabled {j-Spades}{10-Spades} and Nguyen turned over the {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades} for the rivered set to take down the nice sized pot as well as leaving his opponent with a short stack.
