Not Exactly Nguyen-ing

Scotty Nguyen, baby.

Scotty Nguyen has been awfully quiet over the last level, having seen his stack fall to a little more than a third of its original size.

He chirped up recently, however, calling a 450-chip bet from a player in middle position.

Both players checked down the {q-Spades}{q-Hearts}{6-Diamonds} flop, {a-Diamonds} turn and the {8-Clubs} river before Scotty's opponent showed {k-Spades}{j-Clubs}.

"I can beat that, baby," said Nguyen, turning over {6-Hearts}{5-Hearts} to rake in the chips and begin the slow climb back to health.

Scotty Nguyen us 13,500 -15,500
