Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Le Makes the Fastest Call on Record

Soi Nguyen raised to 350,000 to open the pot, and Duy Le reraised to 1.35 million with position. Nguyen called, and the two men went heads up the rest of the way.

The flop came out {K-Spades} {10-Diamonds} {K-Diamonds}, and it was check-checked to the {6-Spades} turn. Nguyen tapped the table again, and Le fired out 1.4 million chips. Nguyen called, and that brought them to the {6-Hearts} on the river, double pairing the board. Nguyen decided to fire, and he announced an all in. Le called all in for 2.75 million before the words were even out of Nguyen's mouth, and the latter sunk in his chair.

Nguyen: {6-Diamonds} {7-Diamonds}
Le: {A-Spades} {K-Clubs}

"That's the record for the fastest call," Adam Levy said from across the table.

Benjamin Statz chimed in too: "I don't know what kind of Jedi mind trick you did to get the turn and river to come like that," he said to Le.

After that pot, Le finds himself sitting with twice as many chips -- 11.4 million of them, in fact. Nguyen has taken his biggest hit in a long time, and he's fallen back to 14.1 million now.
