2022 RRPO Event 11 Champion Long Nguyen

Event 11 of the 2022 Seminole Hard Rock ‘N’ Roll Poker Open was a $600 Pot-Limit Omaha 8 (Re-Entry). A field of 122 entries generated a prize pool of $64,050, and taking it down was Long Nguyen, winning outright for $18,065.

This marked Nguyen’s third SHRP major series trophy victory. His first came in this same tournament during the 2021 SHRPO, while the second was in a $400 six-max PLO at the 2021 RRPO. This was also Nguyen’s 11th final table in an SHRP major series.

The victory puts Nguyen past the $200K mark on the Hendon Mob poker database.

The flop was KdQd2c, Dyment led out for the pot of 200,000, and Nguyen thought for a little while before sticking in his remaining 385,000.

Dyment called with Jc5h4d2d for a pair of deuces with a flush draw, while Nguyen tabled AdKh9h4c for a pair of kings.

The 9c turn and 10h river completed the board, no help to Dyment, securing the double for Nguyen.

They checked to the turn of a KsJd2sKd board where Nguyen bet 75,000. Dyment check-raised pot, Nguyen reraised, and Dyment called all in for 510,000.

Nguyen:  KhQc10d6d
Dyment:  9s9h2h2d

Nguyen had trip kings with a straight draw and flush draw, but Dyment had deuces full of kings to leave Nguyen with just the full-house outs.

The river was the 3s, no help to Nguyen, locking up the double for Dyment.

Ilya Dyment  –  1,120,000  (22 bb)

The turn was the 9h, and while that gave Nguyen a jack-high straight, it gave Dyment sevens full of nines to leave Nguyen drawing to the two remaining aces in the deck.

The river was the Ad, giving Nguyen aces full of sevens to double into the lead.

Long Nguyen  –  1,320,000  (26 bb)
