Event #62: The $1,111 Little One for One Drop

Eyster and Nguyen Double

• Taso 24: 12,000-24,000, 4,000 ante

A short-stacked Kevin Eyster was all in and at risk with {3-Diamonds}{3-Spades} against Vimy Ha's {8-Clubs}{8-Hearts}. He would bink the {3-Clubs} on the flop and the board would keep him in the lead as he would score a much needed double up to 675,000.

Two hands later at the same table, Bao Nguyen would open shove for 804,000 from the button and Xiao Peng would make the call from the small blind. It was a race with Nguyen holding {9-Spades}{9-Hearts} and Peng {A-Hearts}{K-Spades} but that race would end quickly when a nine would flop. Peng was knocked down to a short stack with just 425,000 after the hand while Nguyen was well above average with 1,650,000.

Bao Nguyen US 1,650,000 790,000
Vimy Ha us 1,300,000 -336,000
Kevin Eyster us 675,000 425,000
