Event #44: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em

Ngu Wins Monster Pot

• Level 12: 600-1,200, 200 ante

During the third hand of hand-for-hand play, Jessica Ngu was all in on the river of a board reading {j-Clubs}{2-Spades}{9-Hearts}{3-Diamonds}{8-Spades}. Ngu had been called by Steven Klein and both had to wait about five minutes for a showdown.

After the hands on all tables were completed, the floor arrived at the table and the cards were turned over.

Ngu: {q-Clubs}{10-Spades}
Klein: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

Klein had flopped a set of jacks but was crushed by the river straight of Ngu's. Klein had been left crippled, while Ngu is now among the leaders.
