Don Nguyen - 2nd Place

Hand #84: Mark Radoja announced all in from his button. Don Nguyen folded.

Hand #85: Nguyen moved all in from his button and Radoja announced a call.

Nguyen: {A-Diamonds}{3-Clubs}
Radoja: {K-Spades}{9-Spades}

"Come on, man!" yelled Radoja seeing he was behind at this point. "King of hearts ONE TIME!!!!"

The flop came {J-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{5-Hearts} and Nguyen's ace-high remained in the lead. Radoja would need to pair up on the next two streets in order to end the tournament here. Nguyen came one step closer to doubling on the {4-Diamonds} turn and needed to dodge a king or a nine on fifth to stay alive.

The dealer produced the river- the {K-Diamonds} and Radoja screamed with pure joy, securing his second WSOP victory. Nguyen was eliminated in 2nd place and will take home $204,648 in prize money.
