Da Cruz Gets Lucky to Double

By April 4, 2023One Comment

Blinds: 75,000/150,000

On the final hand before the break, chip leader Pham Nguyen raised to 400,000, only to see Eider Da Cruz moved all in for 2,300,000 behind him. Nguyen thought for a bit before calling with [10h][10d], and he was in great shape to score the knockout against the [8c][8h] of Da Cruz.

However, the flop would come down [9c][8s][6h], giving Da Cruz a set. Nguyen could still win with a ten or seven, but the board finished out [3s] and [6d], giving Da Cruz a full house, and double up to five million.
