It took exactly one shuffle to end the match.

On the first hand back, Kennii Nguyen was dealt {K-Hearts} {J-Spades}, and Cliff Goldkind woke up with a pair — {6-Clubs} {6-Spades}. All in and a call, and the cards were on their backs.

The two men stood together in front of their stacks, and Nguyen was yelling instructions at the dealer. "Picture! Picture! Monkey!" But his pleas fell on deaf ears. The board ran {2-Spades} {5-Clubs} {2-Hearts} {10-Clubs} {A-Hearts}, and the last of Nguyen's chips were slid across to his neighbor.

Kennii Nguyen put on a great show here today, and his energy was contagious both at the table and here at our desks. For his work this week, he'll win $347,036. You can buy all sorts of crazy hats with that money.
