Frank Sinopoli

Frank Sinopoli raised to 180,000 from early position, and it folded around to Khoa Nguyen who defended his big blind. The flop came {9-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}. Nguyen checked, and Sinopoli continued with a bet of 220,000. Nguyen responded with a check-raise to 550,000, then Sinopoli pushed all in for 1.135 million total. Nguyen made the call.

Nguyen: {Q-Diamonds}{8-Diamonds}
Sinopoli: {A-Spades}{10-Spades}

Two pair for Sinopoli, but a flush draw for Nguyen. The turn was the {K-Clubs} and river the {10-Clubs}, and Sinopoli survives with about 2.75 million. Nguyen now has 5.7 million.
