Nguyen Shoves River

Level 17: Blinds 10k/15k/15k

Onyejiaka "Nick" Chukwuebu opened to 45,000 from middle position and then was three-bet to 140,000 by Will Nguyen in the cutoff.

Chukwuebu made the call and the two went heads-up to a flop of [2c3d4s] which saw a continuation from Nguyen for 120,000 and a call from Chukwuebu.

Both players decided to check through the turn [9s] and went straight to the river [4c]. Chukwuebuthen led out for 110,000 but Nguyen shoved all in to cover him, which sent him into the tank.

After several moments, Chukwuebu decided to lay it down and tapped the table as Nguyen was pushed the big pot to boost him up to 1,300,000 while Chukwuebuwas left short with just 230,000.
