Table 1: Qui Nguyen Doubles Through Michael Ruane

Qui Nguyen

Hand 78:

Action folds around to Michael Ruane on the button and he moves all in. James Obst folds his small blind and Qui Nguyen instantly calls for his remaining 8,000,000.


The flop comes down    , keeping Nguyen's jacks out in front. That all changes in an instant, however, as the   drills the turn to pair Ruane. Suddenly, Nguyen needs help on the river in order to stay alive.

He gets exactly that, as the   falls on fifth street to give Nguyen a winning straight.

Qui Nguyen - 16,100,000 (53 bb)
Michael Ruane - 38,420,000 (128 bb)
