All You Can Eat, Baby

[user101598]
Nguyen is back in the hunt.

Jeffrey Papola opened to 160,000 on the button and Men "The Master" Nguyen called from the big blind.

The flop fell {j-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}{q-Clubs} and Nguyen checked to Papola who continued for 225,000. Nguyen moved all in for 865,000 and Papola snapped it off.

Showtown
Papola: {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds}
Nguyen: {9-Clubs}{6-Clubs}

Everyone was standing in the ESPN arena as the dealer wrapped the table and delivered the {9-Hearts} on the turn. It didn't complete Nguyen's flush, but it gave him five extra outs.

The {6-Spades} was one of those outs, and after it fell on the river Nguyen's rail exploded. Nguyen himself gave a few Kobe fist-pumps and even a leg kick as the dealers verified the pot.

"You suck out on me," Nguyen said to Papola. "Now it's my turn baby."

Nguyen doubled to 1,960,000 chips and Papola slipped to 4,150,000.
