Event 4: $1,500 Seven Card Stud Hi-Low 8-or-Better

Good Game, Baby

Scotty Nguyen

We walked up to Scotty Nguyen's table to see him involved in a pot for his tournament life.

Nguyen: (x-x) / {7-Hearts} {A-Hearts} {9-Clubs} {K-Spades} / (x)
Opponent: (x-x) / {6-Hearts} {4-Hearts} {9-Diamonds} {J-Hearts} / (x)

Nguyen bet fifth street as we approached, and his 700-chip bet on sixth street was all he had left.

When the call came, neither man had a made hand.

Nguyen: ({4-Spades} {3-Diamonds}) / {7-Hearts} {A-Hearts} {9-Clubs} {K-Spades} / (x)
Opponent: ({2-Diamonds} {5-Hearts}) / {6-Hearts} {4-Hearts} {9-Diamonds} {J-Hearts} / (x)

Nguyen was ahead with just ace-king high, but Mr. Opponent was drawing to the world for the knockout.

On seventh, Mr. Opponent pulled the {4-Diamonds} to make a pair, and Nguyen's {J-Clubs} left him with no pair, no chips, and an empty beer bottle. His day is done.
