Main Event

Le Good

Jukka Juvonen raised to 3,000, Yong Hyun Yoo and Jessica Ngu called, and Nam Le joined in from the big blind. Action checked around on the {j-Clubs}{4-Spades}{3-Hearts} flop. Then after the {5-Diamonds} on the turn, Le took a 6,700-chip stab at the pot. Juvonen folded, and Yoo called. Ngu went to flick her cards to the dealer, stopped, almost flicked, stopped, almost flicked, stopped, finally flicked. The river card was the {5-Spades}, and Le checked. Yoo checked behind. Nam turned up {A-Clubs}{9-Clubs} for ace-high. Yoo first turned over an ace and then paused for a good ten seconds. We were prepared for a nice slowroll, but Yoo showed the {6-Diamonds} for a missed straight draw, and Le took the pot. He's sitting with around 40,000 at the moment. Ngu grabbed her head in frustration when she saw ace-high win the hand.
