John Hennigan: {x-}{x-} / {7-Spades}{9-Clubs}{5-Spades}{a-Spades} / {x-}

Nguyen brought it in, then called when Hennigan completed. Making a pair of fives on fourth street, Nguyen proceeded to bet out on fourth, fifth, and sixth. Hennigan called on the first two streets, then raised on sixth. Nguyen called.

Both players checked on seventh, and Hennigan scooped with {10-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} for nines and sevens.

Hand #147:

Don Nguyen: {x-}{x-} / {6-Spades}{q-Spades}{7-Hearts}{a-Hearts} / {x-}
Benyamine: {x-}{x-} / {j-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}{6-Clubs} / {x-}

Matthew Ashton brought it in with the {6-Hearts}, Nguyen completed, and Benyamine raised. Only Nguyen called.

Benyamine bet out on fourth and fifth, Nguyen called both bets, and when Nguyen made a better board on sixth, he bet. Benyamine called.

The two checked on seventh, and Nguyen showed a pair of eights. They were no good against Benyamine's {j-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{x-} for a pair of jacks.
