It was unclear how many bets it took for Jack Duong and Rumen Nanev to get it in, but all of the chips went in the middle preflop with Duong at risk.

Jack Duong: {a-Diamonds}{j-Spades}
Rumen Nanev: {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}

The board ran out {k-Clubs}{2-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{10-Spades}{7-Spades} and Duong failed to improve, busting late on Day 1.
