Joe Cassidy raised on the button and Scotty Nguyen re-raised all in for 200,000 total. Cassidy called and the hands were revealed:

Cassidy: {A-Spades}{K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{2-Hearts}
Nguyen: {J-Clubs}{8-Hearts}{5-Spades}{2-Spades}

The flop came down {A-Clubs}{Q-Hearts}{8-Clubs} giving Cassidy top pair to Nguyen's bottom pair with the same low draw. However, the {J-Hearts} hit the turn to give Nguyen a leading two pair. Cassidy picked up a broadway draw and got there when the {10-Hearts} hit the river to win the tournament.

Scotty Nguyen's valiant effort came up just short with a second-place finish.
