Event #16: $10,000 Heads-Up No-Limit Hold'em

Hands 1-2: And So We Begin

• Level 1: 15,000-30,000, 0 ante

Hand #1: Don Nguyen opened for 60,000 and Mark Radoja came along to see a flop of {4-Spades}{3-Clubs}{6-Hearts} arrive. Radoja then checked, Nguyen bet 50,000, and Radoja raised to 140,000. Nguyen called to take a turn card, which came {4-Diamonds}. Radoja checked again, but folded to Nguyen's second barrel of 60,000.

Hand #2: Radoja opened for 60,000 and Nguyen called, bringing a flop of {8-Hearts}{a-Spades}{5-Hearts} on board. Nguyen then check-raised Radoja's bet of 55,000, making it 140,000 to go. Radoja called and the {A-Diamonds} fell on the turn. Nguyen led out this time, for a bet of 160,000, and after a call by Radoja, we saw the {Q-Diamonds} come on the river. Nguyen fired again, betting 320,000, but he insta-folded when Radoja announced himself all-in.
