Event 54: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Nghi Van Tran is Eliminated in 4th Place ($158,512)

Nghi Van Tran - 4th

The only reason Nghi Van Tran is not going to win a World Series of Poker (WSOP) bracelet - and it's a pretty good one - has been his inability to win a single flip during this final table.

Joseph Kuether raised to 120,000 in the cutoff, Nghi Van Tran moved all-in on the button, Will Jaffe also moved all-in from the big blind and Kuether folded.

Jaffe{A-Spades} {J-Spades}
Tran{7-Spades} {7-Diamonds}

Flop: {10-Clubs} {10-Diamonds} {5-Clubs}

The best flop Tran had seen in a long while.

Turn: {Q-Spades}

There was a collective, "ooh," from the crowd as some of them thought it was a Jack.

River: {Q-Hearts}

The crowd went berserk as the board paired for the second time and Jaffe's ace played. Tran losing yet another flip and he was out in 4th place.
