Nguyen Has to Sweat It


We were still waiting to begin the hand-for-hand dealing process while the final table finished up their pre-bubble hand. It ended up with another all-in-and-a-call though as Minh Nguyen got his last 177,000 into the middle with {A-Diamonds} {K-Spades}. Alexander Roumeliotis put him to the test, but his {K-Diamonds} {Q-Diamonds} was dominated and poised to grant Nguyen a big double.

The {7-Diamonds} {10-Hearts} {8-Diamonds} flop was a big sweat for the at-risk player. Roumeliotis picked up the diamond draw there, but he could not find an out. The turn {5-Spades} and river {5-Hearts} filled out the board, much to the delight of Nguyen. He's doubled on the bubble, and we're now going hand-for-hand until we award someone the wooden spoon.
