Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky Eliminated in 3rd Place ($110,485); Don Nguyen Advances
Nivel 4 : 15,000-30,000, 0 ante
Hand #41: Don Nguyen raised to 60,000 on the button, Ben "Sauce123" Sulsky three-bet to 145,000, Nguyen pushed out what looked like 800,000 in chips, and Sulsky moved all in for 935,000.
"Let's go!" Sulsky exclaimed.
Nguyen called, and the cards went on their backs.
The flop changed little, and the turned, giving Sulsky a pair of jacks. Nguyen could still win with a ten on the river for a straight, and low and behold the spiked on the felt to end Sulsky's run in the Heads-Up Championship.
He will go home with $110,485, his largest WSOP cash to date, while Nguyen will play the winner of the Justin Bonomo/Mark Radoja match in the finals and is now guaranteed at least $204,648.
