Just seven minutes into Day 6, Erick Lindgren got off to a great start with an early double. It began when Lindgren shoved all in from early position for 329,000 and cleared the field all the way around to Minh Nguyen in the big blind. Nguyen thought for a few moments before making the call.
The ESPN cameras swarmed the table to capture the all-in moment of one of the biggest names remaining in the field. The atmosphere was tense, but alleviated when the flop gave Lindgren a pair of nines and increased his chances of winning the pot. The turn put an end to any further suspense as Nguyen was drawing dead.
The meaningless was put out on the river and Lindgren was all smiles with his early double.
