Feb 29, 2016

Corey Hochman raises to 8,000 from early position and Binh Nguyen three-bets to 23,000 out of the small blind. Hochman four-bets to 41,000 and Nguyen takes some time in the tank before calling.

The flop is Diamond 10Diamond 9Club 9 and Nguyen checks. Hochman bets 29,500 and Nguyen goes into the tank. He cuts out a call and then cuts out the rest of his chips to see what he has behind. After some time in the tank, Nguyen moves all in for an additional 99,500 and Hochman snap-calls.

Hochman shows Spade AHeart A and needs to find an ace against Nguyen’s Spade 9Club 8. The turn is the Heart J and the river is the Heart K to give Nguyen a double up at the expense of Hochman.

Binh Nguyen – 340,000 (85 bb)
Corey Hochman – 87,000 (22 bb)
