Franklin on the Comeback
Nivel 17 : 4,000-8,000, 0 ante
Don Nguyen tossed out a raise from under the gun and it folded around to Tom Franklin in the big blind. He called and took one card at the draw while Nguyen opted for two. Franklin led out with a bet and Nguyen called.
For the second draw, the two repeated their actions of drawing one and two. Franklin bet and Nguyen called yet again.
"You never give up, do you?" asked Franklin after Nguyen tossed out a call.
Franklin stood pat during the final draw and Nguyen pulled one card. Both players checked the final betting round.
"Nine-eight," said Nguyen.
Franklin silently fanned for a winning eighty-seven and took down the pot. Franklin is now flirting with 100k in chips while Nguyen has dropped to 180,000.
