Chris Haugo Eliminated in 5th Place ($72,843)

Chris Haugo - 5th Place

Hand 57: Haugo moved all in under the gun, and action folded to Nguyen, who called immediately upon seeing his cards.

Haugo: {a-Hearts}{k-Clubs}
Nguyen: {10-Clubs}{10-Hearts}

The {6-Clubs}{4-Clubs}{8-Clubs} flop gave both players flush draws, though Haugo's was obviously better. A {5-Diamonds} turn meant Haugo needed to improve on the river to survive, unless a {7-} hit, which would mean a chopped pot. The {4-Spades} paired the board, leaving Haugo felted.

"Good hand," he said, shaking Nguyen's hand. "Good luck."
