Albert Nguyen

Daniel Smiljkovic opened to 300,000 from under the gun and Albert Nguyen moved all in from the cutoff. Mohammad Siddiqui called with the shorter stack out of the big blind and Smiljkovic folded.

Mohammad Siddiqui: {a-Hearts}{q-Hearts}
Albert Nguyen: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}

Siddiqui was flipping for his tournament life but found immediate help on the {7-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} flop. The {q-Clubs} turn and {10-Spades} river kept him ahead, pushing his stack north of 5,000,000 while leaving Nguyen short.

On the next hand Nguyen moved all in for his last 700,000 from middle position and was called by Andrew Moreno on the button.

Albert Nguyen: {a-Clubs}{2-Hearts}
Andrew Moreno: {k-}{j-}

Nguyen was slightly ahead. The {5-Spades}{j-Spades}{9-Hearts} flop paired up Moreno, leaving Nguyen drawing thin. The {j-Diamonds} turn sealed the deal for Moreno before the meaningless {3-Hearts} river hit the felt, sending Nyugen out of the tournament in 12th place.
