Championship: 3rd. Place Nguyen


$2,500 + $200 Borgata Spring Poker Open Championship NLH

Kenny Nguyen
$108,662


Bobby Oboodi raised to 100,000 from the button and Mike Gagliano three-bet to 325,000 from the small blind. Kenny Nguyen four-bet to 1,025,000 from the big blind and Gagliano five-bet all-in for about 7 million.

Nguyen went into the tank for about 10 minutes.

"I haven't been all-in once in this tournament," Nguyen said.

Nguyen ultimately called and tabled A♣Q♣ and Gagliano showed KK♠.

The flop was K1010 to give Gagliano a boat and leaving Nguyen drawing to runner-runner Aces. But the K♣ on the turn gave Gagliano Quad-Kings and left Nguyen drawing dead. The river was the meaningless 8♠ and Nguyen was eliminated.
