Shooting Star Joe Nguyen Triples Up

Level 17
Blinds: 3000-6000 with a 6000 bb ante
Remaining: 59/440

Shooting Star Joe Nguyen (pictured) is all in preflop for 103,000 on the big blind, and both Francis Pezzullo (under the gun) and Ari Shin (UTG+1) have him covered. Pezzullo is all against Shin in the side pot so all three players flip over their cards.

Nguyen: [As][Qc]
Shin: [Kh][Ks]
Francis Pezzullo: [Kd][Js]

Board: [9s][9c][2d][Qh][Ac]

Nguyen triples up to survive with 324,000, and Pezzullo is eliminated on the hand. Shin is at 390,000 after taking the side pot.

Jon Nguyen - 324,000 (54 bb)
Ari Shin - 390,000 (65 bb)
Francis Pezzullo - Eliminated
