Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

A Juen and Nguyen Prelude


Alban Juen raised from under the gun for 77,000 and got one caller in Dung Nguyen from the button. Nguyen is one of four players still alive in the Main Event who is seeking a second bracelet this summer (along with Vanessa Selbst, Greg Merson, and David "ODB" Baker). Nguyen won his bracelet in Event 38: $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em.

The flop came {8-Hearts}{2-Spades}{J-Diamonds} and when Juen continued for 105,000, Nguyen quickly called. Both then checked the {2-Clubs} turn and {7-Clubs}.

"Ace," said Juen, turning over his {A-Clubs}{6-Hearts}. Nguyen had an ace, too, with {A-Diamonds}{4-Diamonds}, and the pair chopped the pot.

"We will play together," said Juen across the table to Nguyen, a slight grin on his face. "Oh yes, we will," agreed Nguyen. "It's going to be a funny game," added Juen.
