Scotty Nguyen Doubles Into the Chip Lead Through Justin Young
Level 23: 30,000-60,000, 5,000 ante
Scotty Nguyen raises from early position to 170,000, and Justin Young calls from middle position. The flop comes J92, Nguyen bets 175,000, and Young calls.
The turn card is the Q, Nguyen checks, Young bets 450,000, Nguyen raises to 1,050,000, and Young moves all in. Nguyen calls all in with 99 (set of nines), and Young shows Q9 for two pair.
Young needs a queen on the river, but the last card pairs the board with the 2, and Scotty Nguyen wins the pot with a full house, nines full of deuces.
Scotty Nguyen - 5,500,000
Justin Young - 3,500,000
With that pot, Scotty Nguyen takes the chip lead.
