Nguyen Leads!

[user127999] • Level 23: 10,000-20,000, 3,000 ante
Thi Xoa Nguyen

Natan Chauskin made it 42,000 and Thi Xoa Nguyen three-bet to 86,000.

Chauskin called and the flop came down {q-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds}. Both players checked and Chauskin tapped the table again after the {6-Diamonds} turn was revealed. Nguyen led for 104,000 and Chauskin check-raised, making it 246,000.

"Will you show if I fold," asked Nguyen. "I have a big hand."

Chauskin remained mute and a minute later, Nguyen shoved in. Chauskin folded.

A hand or two later, Nguyen check-raised over a Benjamin Pollak bet, three-handed on a {q-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{2-Clubs} flop, forcing two folds to move up to two-million chips and into the lead.
