Hands #234-235: Nguyen Doubles Again

• Level 27: 25,000-50,000, 5,000 ante

Hand 234: Danny Nguyen raised to 110,000 and Jeff Smith called to go to a flop of {4-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}{6-Spades}. Smith check-called the bet of 135,000 from Nguyen and the dealer brought out the {a-Hearts} on the turn. Both players checked before the river - {5-Diamonds} - hit the felt. Both players checked again and Nguyen announced "fives." Smith turned over the better hand of {6-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds} for a pair of sixes.

Hand 235: Smith raised to 110,000 and Nguyen three-bet to 280,000. Smith took little time pushing his big stack all in and Nguyen spent a minute deciding his move. He eventually called and turned over {j-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}; Smith laughed. "Slowroll," he said and turned over {3-Clubs}{3-Spades}. The board ran out {k-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{9-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}{a-Clubs} and Nguyen got the big double up. He now has more than a 3-to-1 chip lead.
