Big O

Men Nguyen has been eliminated from the tournament in stunning fashion following a massive 1-2 combo punch from Scott Abrams and Peter Neff.

First, Abrams raised pot to 240,000 in the small blind and was called by Nguyen in the big blind.

Abrams then check-called a bet of 400,000 from Nguyen on the {7-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}{q-Spades} flop.

On the {7-Hearts} turn, Abrams checked again, then after a pot-sized bet of 1,360,000 from Nguyen, Abrams moved all in, with Nguyen holding a bit over 1,700,000 behind.

Nguyen frustratedly folded to preserve his stack.

On the very next hand however, Nguyen raised the pot (240,000) from the small blind and was called by Neff in the big blind.

Nguyen quickly potted the {4-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{j-Spades} flop and Neff then moved all in for the rest of Nguyen's stack. The seven-time bracelet winner called and was shockingly at risk.

Men Nguyen: {a-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}{5-Hearts}{4-Spades}{2-Diamonds}
Peter Neff: {a-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}{10-Spades}{3-Clubs}{3-Hearts}

After the dealer dropped the {q-Hearts} on the river, Nguyen's two pair of aces and nines were second best to Neff's aces and jacks, and in two fell swoops, Nguyen went from four million chips to zero and was headed to the payout window.
