Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

Straight Flush for Nguyen


Bolivar Palacios and Khoa Nguyen were in action on the turn with the board reading {Q-Clubs}{J-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. Palacios fired a bet on the turn worth 200,000 and Nguyen called to see the {9-Diamonds} fall on the river.

"Three-hundred thousand," announced Palacios with the board now complete.

Nguyen thought for a little bit and then announced, "Eight-hundred thousand."

"How much more is it?" asked Palacios after a few seconds.

"Five-hundred thousand," replied the dealer.

Palacios then tanked for about half a minute more. He then made the call. After he did, he announced that he had ace-king, but Nguyen tabled the {K-Diamonds}{Q-Diamonds} for a straight flush. Nguyen won the pot and Palacios was left steaming.
