After Michael Loncar opened to 100,000 in early position, Toan Nguyen called in the hijack and Arthur Tanimoto moved all in for 410,000.

Loncar folded, but Nguyen called.

Arthur Tanimoto: {a-Clubs}{j-Diamonds}
Toan Nguyen: {k-Spades}{q-Spades}

The board came {q-Hearts}{j-Hearts}{8-Clubs}{3-Diamonds}{6-Diamonds}, pairing Nguyen's queen immediately and holding from there to send the likeable dentist home with ninth-place money.
