Phong Than Nguyen limped from the small blind and Chris Moorman shoved all in from the big blind. Nguyen snap-called for his tournament life.

Phong Than Nguyen: {a-Diamonds}{q-Diamonds}
Chris Moorman: {4-Spades}{4-Clubs}

The two were locked in a classic race but Nguyen pulled far ahead on the {2-Hearts}{a-Hearts}{7-Spades} flop and stayed in front after the {a-Clubs} turn. However, just as he was about to count out his stack for a full double, the {4-Diamonds} came out of nowhere on the river to dash Nguyen's hopes of a first WSOP bracelet in gut wrenching fashion, forcing him instead to settle for sixth place and $48,299.
