Noh Doubles Through Nam

Tae Jun Noh back in contention!
Tae Jun Noh opened with a 35,000 chip bet from under the gun. Hyoung Jin Nam made the call in the small blind and Michael Chang came along in the big blind.

The flop was {5-Hearts}{A-Spades}{8-Diamonds} and play was checked to Noh who made a continuation bet of 70,000. Nam made the call as Chang stepped aside.

The turn was the {6-Clubs} and Nam checked to Noh who quickly announced he was all in for 248,000. Nam normally acts very quickly, but he thought for a few moments before finally sliding his chips into the middle to make the call.

Nam: {7-Spades}{6-Spades}
Noh: {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}

Noh held top pair, top kicker for the lead as Nam was drawing with a pair and straight draw.

The river was dealt and revealed the {10-Diamonds}, just missing Nam's straight, and doubling up Noh to roughly 750,000 chips.
