Nguyen All In and Dominated

• Level 33: 120,000-240,000, 30,000 ante
Khoa Nguyen celebrates a a chop to stay alive.

Khoa Nguyen moved all in from early position and received a call from Eoghan O'Dea in the cutoff. The rest of the players got out of the way, and Nguyen found himself in bad shape.

O'Dea: {A-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}
Nguyen: {A-Spades}{2-Hearts}

Both players shared an ace, but the jack kicker of O'Dea put him out in front. The {10-Spades}{10-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} flop did open up some chop opportunities for Nguyen, as did the {10-Hearts} turn. Suddenly a deuce would win it for Nguyen, while any king, queen, ten, or three would allow him to chop.

Wouldn't you know it, the {K-Diamonds} spiked on the river to keep Nguyen's dreams alive.
