Nancy Birnbaum limped from the button for 20,000, Long Nguyen completed the small blind, and German Gomez checked his option in the big blind.

The flop came Jd10h3h, and Nguyen pot-bet 60,000. Gomez folded, Birnbaum moved all in, and Nguyen called all in for about 265,000.

Nancy Birnbaum:  Jh8h8s2h  (pair of jacks, heart flush draw)
Long Nguyen:  Qc10s10d5s  (set of tens)

The turn card was the 5c, the river card was the 9h, and Birnbaum rivered her heart flush to win the pot and eliminate Nguyen in third place.

Nguyen was fresh off a victory last night in Event 11, earning $12,040, and he came close to back-to-back trophies on back-to-back days.
