Event 59: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Hieu Nguyen Eliminated in 12th Place ($41,788)

Hieu Nguyen - 12th place

It folded around to Hieu Nguyen in the small blind who completed, then Dominik Nitsche put in a raise from the big blind which Nguyen called.

The flop came {4-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{8-Spades}, and Nguyen only paused a beat before declaring he was pushing his short stack all in. Nitsche took even less time to call, tabling {9-Hearts}{9-Spades} for top set. Nguyen flipped over {J-Spades}{10-Hearts} for an open-ended straight draw. The turn was the {6-Hearts} and river the {K-Diamonds}, and Nguyen is out.

"How could you call that?" joked Daniel Eichhorn afterwards to Nitsche. "All you have is a set and he has a straight draw… you're at risk!"

Nitsche chuckled in response. He has reason to smile, as that hand pushes him up over the 3 million-chip mark, enabling him to increase his lead with 11 left.
