A player min-raised from the cutoff to 8,000, Alex Nguyen called from the button, and Chris Limo reraised from the small blind to 34,000. The cutoff folded, and Nguyen called.

Both players checked to the turn on a board of AhAs4s9c, Limo bet 16,000, and Nguyen called.

The river card was the 5c, Limo bet 61,000, and Nguyen tanked for a while before he called.

Limo said, “You win,” as he showed KsJd. Nguyen turned over 7s7c, and won the pot with two pair, aces and sevens.

Alex Nguyen  –  705,000  (176 bb)
Chris Limo  –  150,000  (38 bb)
