Event 21: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Setback for Nguyen

We don't know exactly how the action went, but we know Huy Nguyen who was second in chips going into the hand, had his opponent all in and at risk. Nguyen held {k-}{k-} while his short stacked opponent wielded {A-Diamonds}{k-Diamonds}.

A {10-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} flop allowed Nguyen to breathe a little easier as all he had to do now was fade an ace or running diamonds. A {9-Clubs} on the turn brought more assurance, but the {A-Hearts} on the river caused all of that to go away. Nguyen now had to send over 111,000 of his chips to his lucky opponent.

Huy Nguyen us 260,000 -160,000
