Tommy Nguyen

Hand #120: Tomym Nguyen raised to 100,000 on his button and Shankar Pillai three-bet to 350,000 from the small blind. Nguyen called.

The flop came down {3-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{9-Spades} and Pillai continued for 250,000. Nguyen called again, leaving himself with less than a pot-sized stack.

The turn was the {7-Hearts} and Pillai checked. Nguyen tanked for a couple of minutes and counted his stack in the process. Then he shoved for 965,000 and Pillai snap-called.

Nguyen: {k-Spades}{8-Spades}
Pillai: {a-Diamonds}{a-Hearts}

Pillai was ahead with the blades and Nguyen needed a jack or a six to stay in the tournament.

The dealer flipped the {9-Hearts} and Nguyen was eliminated in third place.
