Thuy Nguyen Eliminated in 8th Place ($33,601)

AnthonyThompson • Level 31: 100,000-200,000, 200,000 ante
Thuy Nguyen

Robert Clark raised to 400,000 from under the gun and then called the 1,850,000 three-bet jam Thuy Nguyen made from the small blind.

Thuy Nguyen: {a-Hearts}{q-Diamonds}
Robert Clark: {10-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}

Nguyen held the better hand but Clark held live cards and was the one who connected on the {3-Spades}{10-Spades}{5-Clubs} flop.

The {3-Clubs} paired the board on the turn, leaving Nguyen needing an ace or queen, but the {2-Clubs} completed the board on the river and made him the first causality of the day.
