The flop of [Jc][3s][2d] gave Nguyen no help, but the [2c] on the turn gave him some chop outs. He wouldn't need them though, as the [7h] came on the river to give Nguyen the win.
Dean took the bad beat in stride, shaking hands with Nguyen and congratulating him after. It's not all bad for Andrew Dean. Not only will he be taking home over $186,000, but he also has earned a freeroll into the next Mega Millions in March for being the last Day 2 buy-in player standing.
The night belongs to local player Phuoc Nguyen though! Nguyen will take home a first place prize of $335,889, and will be taking home a big trophy as well. He also will be getting a banner of himself hung up in the tournament area.
Congratulations to Phuoc Nguyen on his victory. We want to thank everyone who came out, especially the Day 2 buy-in players, and helped to make this Mega Millions the biggest one yet!
The action isn't stopping now. The Legends of Poker WPT Main Event starts up tomorrow, so be sure to come back here for all of your updates. Until then, good night from the Bike!
