Khanh Truong

The player in the big blind is all in preflop with Ac6c, and needs to improve to stay alive against the 8s8d of Khanh Truong, who was UTG+1.

The board came 9c6s6h5s7s, and the big blind flops trip sixes, only to see Truong river a nine-high straight to win the pot, eliminating the big blind from Flight E.

Khanh Truong  –  100,000  (33 bb)
