Rubie Take From Truong

Tam Truong opened from middle position and found a called in Brendon Rubie in the hijack. The rest of the players got out of the way and it was heads up to the {K-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{8-Clubs} flop, which went check-check.

The dealer then burned and turned the {2-Hearts}, which saw Rubie call a bet of 100,000 from Truong. When the {9-Diamonds} appeared on the river, Truong checked and Rubie moved all in, putting the pressure on Day 1a chip leader. Truong gave it a few moment's thought but eventually laid down his hand.
