Event #58: $1,111 Little One for One Drop No-Limit Hold'em

Cuong Van Nguyen Eliminated in 2nd Place ($408,264)

mnuwwarah • Level 32: 80,000-160,000, 20,000 ante
Cuong Van Nguyen - 2nd Place

Hand #118: Cuong Van Nguyen raised to 450,000, and Brian Yoon shipped all in. Van Nguyen made the call for around 3 million.

Van Nguyen: {10-Clubs}{8-Hearts}
Yoon: {k-Clubs}{q-Clubs}

The flop came {a-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}, and Yoon was suddenly a bit behind and in danger of being in an even-stacked heads-up match. The turn was a {9-Spades}, which changed nothing.

"Seven!" yelled one of Van Nguyen's greedy railbirds. Instead, the river was the {k-Hearts}, and Yoon had spiked one of the cards he needed to take down the tournament.
