Event #55: The $50,000 Poker Players' Championship

Nguyen Rivers Two Pair

• Nivo 24
Don Nguyen

No-Limit Hold'em

Hand #156: Matthew Ashton completed the small blind, Don Nguyen checked, and the flop fell {9-Spades}{a-Clubs}{q-Spades}. Ashton led out for 120,000, Nguyen called, and the turn was the {5-Diamonds}. Ashton led out again - this time for 320,000 - and again, Nguyen called.

Ashton fired a third and final bullet worth 750,000 when the {4-Clubs} completed the board, and Nguyen called with {9-Clubs}{4-Diamonds} for nines and fours. Ashton unhappily mucked his hand.

Hand #157: David Benyamine raised to 150,000 in the cutoff, Ashton three-bet to 365,000 on the button, and Benyamine called. Benyamine check-called a bet of 270,000 on a flop of {k-Spades}{6-Hearts}{4-Clubs}, then check-folded to another bet of 420,000 when the {q-Hearts} turned.
