Congrants Nguyen ...Showing great courage, Nguyen abused aggression to overcome a lethargic Gordon Vayo heads up. Patiently, he was undermining gradually the opponent's stack never showed resistance.

This is amazing. I would have never thought that heads up in a tournament like this can last that long. Some patience they must be having to play their best game for all these hours. Its like a days work with 8 million salary , if you take in mind only the heads up part.

Qui Nguyen’s unconventional playing style is probably not profitable and can be exploitable in the long run, but it is the style that gives amateur, less-skilled players the best shot at beating professional players.

I think once you've been all in and survived a few flips with odds against you. You just go for it more in the small ball. Great game no one expected. Due the Internet hype of some. This just proves anyone can win it. I see a boom in poker.﻿
