Woods Fights Back

After Darren Woods raised on the button, Kim Nguyen called and then check-called a bet on the {7-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{J-Diamonds} flop. The dealer proceeded to burn and turn the {3-Spades}, and again Nguyen check-called a bet. The same action occurred on the {5-Clubs} river, and Woods revealed {J-Clubs}{6-Clubs} for a pair of jacks. It was good enough to win the pot.

Chipping Up

[user153638]

Darren Woods raised on the button, Kim Nguyen called in the big blind, and the flop came down {J-Diamonds}{8-Spades}{7-Diamonds}. From there, Nguyen check-called a bet, both players checked the {J-Hearts} turn, and Nguyen bet the {J-Spades} river. Woods made the call only to muck when Nguyen flipped {A-Diamonds}{K-Diamonds}.

Sunglasses

[user153638]

Darren Woods raised on the button and Kim Nguyen came along for the ride. Nguyen then checked the {3-Spades}{K-Hearts}{8-Spades} flop, inspiring Woods to bet. Nguyen woke up with a check-raise, and Woods conceded the hand.

We forgot to mention, prior to the hand Nguyen decided it was time to put on sunglasses. Looks like that may have been a good decision.

The River Runs Through the Woods

[user153638] • Ниво 26: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Kim Nguyen raised on the button and this time Darren Woods three-bet from the big blind. Not only did Nguyen make the call, she called every single one of Woods' bets as the board ran out {8-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}. Woods showed a {7-}(X) for the rivered straight to take down the pot.

One for Nguyen

As usual, Kim Nguyen raised from the button and Darren Woods called from the big blind. Woods then check-called a bet on the {3-Hearts}{6-Hearts}{10-Spades} flop, leading to the {7-Diamonds} turn. Woods checked, Nguyen quickly bet, and Woods opted to lay it down.

Trading Chips

[user153638]

The past few hands have seen Kim Nguyen and Darren Woods essentially passing chips back and forth. However, it appears Nguyen is slowly chipping her way back into contention.

Not since Vanessa Selbst took down the $1,500 Pot-Limit Omaha tournament back in the 2008 WSOP has a woman won an open event. That may all change tonight if Kim Nguyen can hold on to claim victory. Ironically, Selbst won Event #19 of the 2008 WSOP, the same event number Nguyen is playing now.

If Nguyen does win, she'll join a short list of women players who have won a WSOP bracelet in an open event: Annette Obrestad (2007 WSOP-Europe Main Event), Katja Thater (2007 Razz), Kathy Liebert (2004 Limit Hold'em Shootout), Cyndy Violette (2004 Seven Card Stud Hi Lo Split 8 or Better), Annie Duke (2004 Omaha Hi Lo Split 8 or Better), Jennifer Harman (2002 Limit Hold'em & 2000 No Limit 2-7 Lowball), Nani Dollison (2001 Limit Hold'em), Jerri Thomas (2000 Limit Seven Card Stud), Maria Stern (1997 Limit Seven Card Stud), Linda Johnson (1997 Limit Razz), Barbara Enright (1996 Pot Limit Hold'em), and Vera Richmond (1982 Limit Ace to Five Draw).
