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

Nguyen Calls with Small Pair


Soi Nguyen opened to 490,000 and action folded to Brandon Steven in the big blind. He three-bet to 1.59 million and Nguyen made the call, creating a pot over three million chips.

The flop came down {J-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs} and both players checked. The turn brought the {9-Hearts} and both players checked again. The river completed the board with the {10-Spades} and Steven fired 1.15 million. Nuyen made the call.

Steven held the {A-Hearts}{K-Hearts}, but Nguyen had a pair, the {4-Clubs}{4-Hearts}. Nguyen won the pot and took a chunk from Steven's stack.
