Thanh Tung Hoang Wins Big Pot With Two Pair

Jaxon • Level 10: 600-1,200, 200 ante

Michael Howard grew his stack from the start of the day and raised from mid position and got a call from local Czech player Thanh Tung Hoang from the big blind.

Hoang checked the {8-Spades}{2-Spades}{6-Spades} flop and Howard bet 4,400. Hoang called and then led out with a bet of 6,500 when the {8-Hearts} appeared on the turn, which Howard called. Hoang led out for a much larger bet of 45,000 when the {k-} appeared on the river. Howard called, but Hoang asked if he was all-in after seeing a pile of blue 5,000-denominated chips being bet. The dealer assured Hoang that this was just a call and Hoang turned over {8-}{6-} for the full house, while Howard tossed his hand in the muck.

Over on the same table is the EPT Prague Super High Roller Charlie Carrel, who is very low on chips with less than six big blinds remaining.
