APPT Sydney: Table break is ace for Nguyen
Scotty Nguyen has risen to the occasion in pursuit of the PokerStars.net APPT Grand Final title, as the Thursday evening crowd rolls in, by doubling up after the dinner break.
Scotty Nguyen doubles up
There are no doubts at all in who has the most support this evening, with the large majority of railbirds getting as close to Scotty's table as they can. Immediately after the the break of tables at the 80-player mark, Scotty woke up at his new destination with pocket aces and won the maximum, as his opponent doubled him up holding cowboys. An ace on the river sealed an already "done deal" for Nguyen giving him a set and just under 90k in chips. The rail went up as one!
The former world champion is now among the healthier stacks remaining. We are now down to 72 players with an average stack of just under 50k.
