Scotty Nguyen Has Been Busted From the 2013 Main Event

The champion of the 1998 edition of this event, Scotty Nguyen, will not be making history this year with by winning a second Main Event title, as he has just been eliminated from the field in particularly painful fashion.

The action began when Nguyen opened for 1,200 from under the gun, and Tyler Denson three-bet to 3,500. After Nguyen flatted, the flop fell {a-Clubs}{10-Hearts}{q-Spades}, and the former champ checked the action.

Denson fired out a bet of 3,500, and Nguyen decided to make his stand, reraising for the rest of his stack. Denson snap-called and revealed the {Q-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds} with a flourish, while Nguyen was left to table his {10-Diamonds}{10-Spades} slowly and in silence, knowing that the end was near.

The turn ({5-Diamonds}) and river ({j-Diamonds}) failed to deliver the case ten to Nguyen, and he quickly walked away from the tournament floor in a daze, a cooler canning him from the most important tournament of the year.
