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

Better Ace for Nguyen

• Level 17: 5,000-10,000, 1,000 ante

Hand #9 Charles Nguyen opened for 30,000 on the button, the small blind folded and Corey Emery from the big blind made it 70,000. Nguyen called and they saw a flop of {k-Spades}{7-Clubs}{8-Clubs}.

Emery led out for 102,000 and Nguyen made the call. They both checked the turn {5-Hearts} and the river {6-Hearts}. “Ace high.” Emery said but when Nguyen tabled his own {a-Diamonds}{8-Hearts} that was the winner as Emery mucked.
