Joe Nguyen Eliminated in 2nd Place ($666,740)

Joe Nguyen
On a board reading [Th][7d][5s][9d], Joe Nguyen bet 530,000 and Kai Chang puts in a three-bet.  Nguyen then moves all-in for 7,010,000 and Chang immediately makes the call.

They turn over:

Chang - [8s][6d]
Nguyen - [Td][2d]

Nguyen has a pair of tens with a flush draw but Chang turns the straight.

The river comes the [6c] and Chang takes the massive pot, eliminating Nguyen from the Shooting Star event.

Joe Nguyen finishes in 2nd place, taking home $666,740.
