Chipleaders Collide in Massive Pot

Van Tiep Nguyen

Van Tiep Nguyen and Asi Moshe are the two chipleaders in the tournament and the two players collided head-on in a massive 2,000,000 chip pot. Nguyen opened to 18,000 only to have Moshe three-bet to 71,000. Nguyen tanked for over a minute before announcing a four-bet all in for over 1.1 million. Moshe mumbled to himself and then made the call for his stack of over 900,000.

Nguyen turned over {a-Clubs}{k-Spades} while Moshe had the same hand with {a-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}. It looked certain that the pot would be chopped but the flop of {9-Spades}{6-Spades}{3-Clubs} have Nguyen the only backdoor flush draw. The turn brought the {8-Spades} and Nguyen's flush draw was a real possibility now. Moshe needed to dodge a spade to stay alive and the river was the {10-Clubs}. It was a black card but the wrong suit for Nguyen as Moshe let out a big sigh of relief and the two players pulled back their chips.
