1F: Son Nguyen Eliminated as Bubble Bursts

After a preflop betting war, Son Nguyen, Nicholas Toralba, and Xinguo Wang got all of their chips into the middle, with Wang covering.

Nguyen: [8h5s]

Toralba: [AhQd]

Wang: [Js10s]

The flop of [2h4d10h] gave Wang the lead with his pair of tens, but the [Kh] on the turn gave Toralba ton of outs with his straight and flush draw. Luckily for Toralba, the river was the [Jd] to give Wang two-pair, but it also gave Toralba the Broadway straight. He was then awarded the entire pot for the double-up while Nguyen was eliminated on the bubble.
