Danny Nguyen tried a big bluff.

Hand 225: Jeff Smith got a walk.

Hand 226: Danny Nguyen called a raise before the flop then bet fourth street with the board reading {6-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{j-Hearts}. Smith folded.

Hand 227: Nguyen raised to 110,000, and Smith three-bet to 285,000. Nguyen called, and the flop came {7-Clubs}{a-Spades}{5-Clubs}. Smith bet 290,000, which Nguyen called. On the [7hd turn, Smith slowed down with a check.

"All in," Nguyen announced, overbetting the pot. Smith snap-called.

Smith: {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}
Nguyen: {9-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}

"I need an eight," Nguyen said.

The dealer didn't give him one, burning and turning the {k-Diamonds}.
