Toan Nguyen Eliminated in 3rd Place ($88,250)

MikePatrick • Level 27: Blinds 50,000-100,000, 100,000 ante
Toan Nguyen

Toan Nguyen moved his last 475,000 in from the button and Brett Murray moved in over top from the small blind. Tyler Patterson folded the big blind and Nguyen was at risk.

Toan Nguyen: {10-Spades}{7-Spades}
Brett Murray: {a-Diamonds}{9-Hearts}

It appeared Nguyen's miraculous comeback might continue as the flop came {10-Hearts}{8-Hearts}{6-Spades}, pairing Nguyen's ten.

But the {a-Clubs} on the river gave Murray back the lead, which held up through the {6-Hearts} river.

Regardless, Nguyen takes home third-place money when he easily could have been out in sixth when he had half a big blind.
