Earlier in the year Simeon Naydenov was able to capture World Series of Poker Gold when he took down
Event #36: $1,500 No Limit Hold'em - Shootout. That was his second final table of the year and it looked like it might be his last here in Las Vegas until he was able triple up here in the Pavilion room just recently.
After a raise of 600, Naydenov jammed all in for his last 5,100. The player to his direct right called and when action folded around to the original raiser he called too, taking the players to a three way flop with action still between the other two players.
The flop came down and the original raiser check called a bet of 2,800 from the player to Naydenov's left. The turn was the and one again the original raiser checked. The player to Naydenov's left fired off 5,100 which drew a fold from the original raiser. This took Naydenov and the player to his left to a showdown.
Naydenov's remaining opponent had pushed out the original raiser and he was able to collect the side pot, but Naydenov was ahead and in great shape to triple up through his opponent. The river was the sealing the deal for Naydenov and he was able to lock up a triple up here on the quest for his third final table of the summer.
