Men Nguyen Eliminated in 2nd Place ($412,746)

[user101598]
Men Nguyen - 2nd Place

Jeffrey Papola raised to 320,000 with the button, Men Nguyen moved all in for a little over 2,000,000 and Papola snapped it off.

Showdown
Papola: {j-Spades}{j-Diamonds}
Nguyen: {k-Spades}{10-Spades}

The few people that were left in the ESPN arena rushed to the stage to catch the {7-Diamonds}{7-Spades}{5-Diamonds} flop.

You could hear a pin drop as the dealer wrapped the table and the {9-Hearts} fell on the turn.

Somebody called for a nine from Nguyen's rail, but in actuality only a king would double him.

The river was high, but the {a-Hearts} was not enough and Nguyen was eliminated in second place. He shook Papola's hand before collecting his things and stepping away from the table. Nguyen's smile disappered quickly though, and he had a few unkind words for one of the dealers.

Hopefully, $412,746 will put a smile on Mr. Nguyen's face.
