Nguyen Folds to Four-Bet

[user38873] • Nível 27: 60,000-120,000, 0 ante

From the cutoff Ben Yu raised to 420,000 and Scotty Nguyen on the button three-bet for the size of the pot, making it 1,420,000 to go. Yu gave it plenty of consideration and four-bet the pot to 4,440,000, which resulted in a quick fold from Nguyen.

One hand later, Nguyen raised to 420,000 and James Calderaro called in the small blind, as did Jason Koon in the big blind. On the {A-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{4-Clubs} flop, Calderaro bet 600,000 and both opponents folded. The defending champion flashed the {A-Spades}{Q-Spades}{8-Hearts}{X-} for top two pair.

On the fourth hand of the final table, the short-stacked Ryan Tosoc raised the pot and Ben Yu responded by making it 900,000 to go from the button. Tosoc just called, which left him 325,000 behind, and the flop came down {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}{9-Clubs}.

Tosoc bet all in and Yu made a quick call.

Yu: {A-Spades}{k-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Spades}
Tosoc: {q-Hearts}{5-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}{4-Hearts}

Yu was ahead with top pair but Tosoc held middle pair with a flush draw. The {3-Clubs} turn gave Tosoc an added straight draw but the {9-Clubs} river was a brick to send him out the door in sixth place.

The final showdown for the coveted gold bracelet and first-place payout of $1,402,683 will see six Americans return to the PokerGO livestream table at the Rio All-Suites Hotel & Casino for Day 4 of Event #42: $25,000 Pot-Limit Omaha 8-Handed High Roller. The biggest Pot-Limit Omaha High Roller at the World Series of Poker to date attracted a field of 230 entries and the lion's share of the $5,462,500 is still up for grabs.

Among the final six are four bracelet winners and five-time WSOP bracelet winner Scotty Nguyen is in the lead with 7,010,000, closely followed by defending champion James Calderaro (6,445,000) and Shaun Deeb (6,305,000). Ben Yu, who entered the tournament after finishing 3rd in Event #38: $10,000 Seven Card Stud Championship, has reached his 11th WSOP final table and is aiming to make it bracelet number three. Yu will enter the final day fourth in chips with 4,775,000.

Jason Koon (2,905,000) and Ryan Tosoc (1,300,000) round up the final six and the former has already locked up his 10th score of at least six digits in the current year. However, the elusive gold bracelet has escaped Koon thus far and the High Roller regular will be determined to change that very fact when the action resumes at 2 p.m. local time with 22 minutes left in level 27 at blinds of 60,000/120,000.
