Kevin Truong (Freehold, NJ)
On one of the first hands of the new level it's a blind vs blind situation.
Kevin Truong raises to 300k from the SB with 900k behind, Cuong Phung moves all in from the BB, and Truong, who is at risk, calls.
Truong: A 10
Phong: 3 5
The flop is clean, but when a 3 hits the turn, Truong says, "come on dealer," and with that Truong's tournament ends in 9th place.
"He knows I'm only playing good hands and he goes all in with 3-5, what does he think I'm going to do," says a frustrated Truong who earns $61,391.
Phung takes his stack to 4 million.
