Qui Nguyen has just doubled up the short-stacked Michael Ruane in only the fourth hand of the night. Nguyen, who started the day as the overwhelming chip leader, raised to 2,350,000, on the button. The small blind folded and Ruane moved all-in for 23,100,000 from the big blind. Nguyen asked for a count before making the call.
