Event #10: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship

Nguyen Has One Hand On The Title


Brandon Adams brought it in with the {5-Hearts} as Men Nguyen completed in the dark with the {A-Hearts}. Adams made the call. Both players checked fourth as Nguyen still hadn't looked at his hole cards. Nguyen again checked fifth as Adams fired a bet. Nguyen decided he'd better look at his hole cards and he decided to make the call.

On sixth, Nguyen checked and Adams bet. Nguyen put in a check-raise and Adams deliberated before making the call. Nguyen again fired the river and Adams looked him up.

Adams: {A-Spades}{8-Diamonds}{9-Hearts} / {5-Hearts}{6-Clubs}{8-Spades}{A-Diamonds}
Nguyen: {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} / {A-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{8-Clubs}

"How do you not raise it?" exclaimed Nguyen as Adams showed aces up which was not quite enough to beat Nguyen's trip tens.

"Well, I was thinking about it..." sighed Adams. He's now on life support with just 350,000 chips.
