Event #1: $500 Casino Employees No-Limit Hold'em

Easy Come, Easy Go

• Level 16: 4,000-8,000, 1,000 ante

Charles Nguyen raised on the button and John Taylor three-bet all in from the big blind. Nguyen thought briefly and then called, flipping over the {a-Diamonds}{j-Diamonds}. Taylor needed a deuce after making the big move with {a-Spades}{2-Diamonds}.

The board ran out {9-Clubs}{4-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{k-Spades}{j-Clubs} and Nguyen held for the much needed double up. "Easy Come, Easy Go," Taylor said. "I thought you were stealing." Nguyen was able to steal some precious chips and his stack is a little more comfortable now.
