Rubie vs. Truong Round 2

In the last hand before the break, action folded to Brendon Rubie and he brought it in for a raise to 50,000, which Tam Truong called from the small blind. It was heads up to the {7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{J-Spades} flop, which saw Truong check-call a bet of 51,000. Both players then checked the {5-Hearts} turn.

When the {2-Diamonds} appeared on the river, Truong checked, opening the door for Rubie to fire out a healthy 161,000. Truong though for about 15 second before announcing a call, only to muck when Rubie rolled over {A-Spades}{4-Diamonds} for a runner-runner wheel.
