Don Nguyen - 2nd Place

Limit Hold'em

Matthew Ashton took a big chip lead into heads-up play and did something he failed to do at three other final tables this summer—win a gold bracelet. Meanwhile, Nguyen was left with his second runner-up finish of the summer.

Hand #264: Ashton raised the button and Nguyen defended from the big blind. Nguyen then checked the {10-Clubs}{7-Diamonds}{3-Diamonds} flop and Ashton bet. Nguyen woke up with a check-raise, Ashton called and the dealer burned and turned the {9-Spades}. Nguyen bet, Ashton called and the {Q-Diamonds} completed the board on the river.

Nguyen bet a second time and then called off when Ashton raised. Nguyen flipped over the {10-Spades}{6-Clubs} but it was no good as Ashton tabled the {k-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. Both players had a pair of tens but Ashton's kicked sealed the victory.

Nguyen slowly stood from the table, shook hands with Ashton and then took his leave in second place.
