Henry Nguyen Eliminated in 3rd Place ($85,055)
Henry Nguyen - Eliminated in 3rd Place
Henry Nguyen limps in from the small blind for 100,000. Scott Stewart checks his option from the big blind.
The flop come down and Nguyen checks. Stewart puts out a bet of 100,000. Nguyen then raises, making it 300,000. With his covering stack, Stewart moves all in for about 3,000,000 effective. Nguyen snap calls.
Nguyen had flopped the nuts, but Stewart has outs to a chop with a ten or an outright win with any heart. The on the turn changes nothing, but it's the on the river. That makes Stewarts flush and earns him the pot while Nguyen is sent to the rail. He takes home the 3rd place prize of $85,055 for his efforts while Stewart has a monster chip lead heading into heads-up play.
Scott Stewart - 9,700,000 (97bb)
Henry Nguyen - Eliminated
