Peter Neff


Peter Neff defended big blind against Ryan Hughes' min-raise from the button.

They saw the {K-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{4-Clubs} hit the felt and Neff let Hughes fire another 50,000. Then he check-raised to 175,000 and Hughes asked him how much did he have left. Neff had another 382,000 in front of him and Hughes decided to call.

Neff shoved all in when the {8-Spades} turn appeared and Hughes called.

Neff: {A-Clubs}{2-Diamonds}{3-Spades}{K-Clubs}{5-Diamonds}
Hughes: {J-Clubs}{5-Clubs}{A-Hearts}{7-Clubs}{7-Hearts}

Hughes found very bad news as Neff had the nut low along with a top-and-bottom two pair hand.

Hughes' chances of getting any piece of the pot were very thin and he wouldn't there on the {Q-Spades} river.

While Hughes took a huge hit and allowed Neff to leap-frog him for the chip lead, he's still sitting on more than 1 million.
