Peter Hsu
Peter Hsu laughed about the hand when it was over.

Rob Brown raised from the button, Peter Hsu moved all in from the small blind for about 2.5 million, and Brown called with AcKs.

Hsu turned over 3h2c, and needed to improve to stay alive.

The board came Qc5h4c2h8d, and Hsu flopped an open-ended straight draw and turned a pair of deuces to win the pot and double up in chips.

After the hand, Brown looked up and said, “I hope you got that for the blog!”

A short while later, Nigel Murray said, “That’s the play of the month.”

Hsu laughed and said, “No it isn’t.”

Peter Hsu  –  5,250,000  (66 bb)
