Congratulations to Nathan Nguyen from Vacaville, CA who finished 7th in our DeepStack Championship Event #56 $600 NLH UltimateStack $100K GTD winning $9,409.
The action started when Joseph Brand moved all in for 1,605,000 from the hijack. Pedro Oliveira called from the small blind. Nguyen was in the big blind, thought for a minute, and also called.
The flop came 2♦ Q♣ T♦, and Oliveira moved all in which had Nguyen covered. Nguyen deliberated for a moment and called off his remaining 1,200,000.
Brand: A♠ Q♥
Oliveira: 9♥ 9♣
Nguyen: 8♥ 8♣
The board ran out the 4♠ and T♠ improving Brand to the highest two pair earning him the main pot and a triple up.
Oliveira won the side pot after his pocket pair bested Nguyen’s slightly lesser pair of eights.
