Chris Chong

Hand #88: Tommy Nguyen opened to 1,700,000 from under the gun and Chris Chong shipped all in for around 11,200,000. Nguyen snap-called and the cards were on their backs.

Tommy Nguyen: {a-Clubs}{k-Spades}
Chris Chong: {a-Spades}{5-Diamonds}

Nguyen held the hand that nobody could beat on the final table, ace-king, and was in a dominating position. The flop came {a-Hearts}{6-Spades}{4-Diamonds} and both players flopped a pair of aces with Nguyen still holding the better kicker. The turn was the {8-Diamonds} and the river brought the {2-Hearts}. Nguyen held on to eliminated Chong in fourth place late into the day.
