Kings Are Good

Posted 2012-06-23 GMT-6 • Level 29: 40,000-80,000, 10,000 ante

Dung Nguyen held {k-Hearts}{q-Spades} when he opened the button to 190,000. Theo Tran called and a {j-Hearts}{k-Diamonds}{9-Clubs} flop was dealt. Both players checked here and then both checked the {2-Clubs} turn. The {6-Diamonds} river would see Tran lead for 100,000 and Nguyen call. Tran held {9-Hearts}{8-Hearts} and those cards into the muck and Nguyen tabled his better pair.

Dung's Lead Increases

Posted 2012-06-22 GMT-6

Dung Nguyen raised the button to 180,000 and Theo Tran came along for the ride in the big blind.

The {j-Diamonds}{2-Spades}{3-Spades} flop would see Tran check call a bet of 200,000 and then both players would check the {j-Spades} turn. On the {5-Hearts} river, Tran check-called another bet, this time for 400,000.

When Nguyen tabled {q-Spades}{9-Spades}, it was good enough to see Tran's cards into the muck and some of his chips into Nguyen's stack.

Bahman Jahanguiri - 3rd Place

Theo Tran folded his button and it was on Bahman Jahanguiri in the small blind. He put in a raise and then Dung Nguyen three-bet. Back on Jahanguiri and he would four-bet shove. Nguyen got to his feet and almost immediately made the call, putting Jahanguiri at risk.

Nguyen: {k-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}
Jahanguiri: {q-Clubs}{j-Spades}

By the time the board ran out {9-Spades}{5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs}{3-Spades}, Jahanguiri was pleading for a jack or queen, but it wasn't meant to be as the {10-Clubs} on the river ensured that Jahanguiri would be heading home in third place.
