Scotty Nguyen Gets His Wish, Loses Pot Anyway

• Nivå 5


We caught up with the action with the board reading {4-Clubs}{A-Diamonds}{K-Clubs} and Scotty Nguyen involved in a pot with three other players. Nguyen bet 200 after the flop and all three players made the call. The turn card fell {J-Hearts} and the action intensified.

After three checks to him, the Prince of Poker fired a bet of 400 into the middle, forcing two opponents to fold. One opponent decided to make the call, however, and the notoriously talkative Nguyen told the dealer "pair the board, baby!"

River: {4-Spades}

The dealer delivered exactly what Scotty had ordered and his opponent checked it to Nguyen, who fired another bet of 400 into the pot. He was surprised to see his opponent check-raise to 800, however, and made the crying call, saying "I think we got the same straight, baby."

His opponent responded with "no, I have a full house actually" while flipping up his {J-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{3-Hearts}{2-Clubs} for a full boat on the turn. Nguyen showed two of his cards while mucking, the {Q-Clubs}{10-Clubs} for the nut straight and a flush draw on the turn, and the pot was shipped to his opponent. Nguyen still has a healthy stack, however, and this loss was not devastating to his chances.
