Event 1: Nuts No Good

$350 + $50 Deep Stack NL (Re-Entry)

Robbed on the River

Rob Nguyen (Brooklyn, NY) often laments how he usually gets his chips in with the best of it, only to end up on the wrong side of the hand. His latest mishap, Chapter 18 - Verse 52, comes when he flops a set of 10s on a board of 10 9 3, with two hearts.

Nguyen checks the nuts, inducing Joe Demone (Sayreville, NJ) to say, "I have the best hand," and leads out. Nguyen reraises, putting Demone, who calls, all in.

Nguyen: 10♣ 10♠ (set of 10s)
Demone: AK(nut flush draw)

Turn: A♣
River: 7

"That's what I'm talking about," says Demone, as he rivers the flush to scoop a 50k pot. To add insult to injury, two other players at the table say they each folded two hearts, meaning Demone was drawing very thin.

Nguyen is down to 12k, while Demone celebrates the hand on his 51st birthday.

Birthday Hearts for Joe
