Another Victim for Le

Nam Le
Nam Le is gathering steam and chips. He's sent another player to the rail, this time with his pocket nines all in preflop against his opponent's ace-queen. The {2-?} {Q-?} {8-?} flop improved Le's opponent to a pair of queens, but nothing is ever settled in Texas Hold'em until the river card comes down. The turn {J-?} gave Le a gutshot straight draw to go with his set draw; the {10-?} that hit the river filled the gutshot.

Le's now on 87,000 in chips.
