Minh Nguyen emerged victorious at Event #14 of the 2016 Aussie Millions, beating a field of 96 players. The Aussie took home a cool A$24,950 in prize money for his stupendous effort.
The $1,150 Australian Poker Hall of Fame saw participation from some big names from the world of poker. Nguyen was in solid form and was chip leader, as he entered the final table.
Vietnam’s Linh Tran second in chips. The duo went on to dominate the final table and set up a heads-up battle for the title between themselves.
Nguyen had almost twice the chips of Tran. The 20th hand of the final battle was its last as Tran bluffed all-in with Q-5 on a 10-9-3-3-4 board. Nguyen (9-8) made the call to seal the deal and condemn his opponent to a second place finish for A$16,630.
The winner also earned himself a LK Boutique Aussie Millions Championship ring apart from the money.
