A Milly to 0, @FlyinLyons KO's Nguyen
Chuck Nguyen was crushing @WPT Main Event on the money bubble, nearly doubling his stack as he and Niall Farrell battled through the 27-hand bubble. Nguyen took down a number of big pots and became the first player to 1,000,000 chips.
Then Pat Lyons came to his table.
"World Famous Pat Lyons," who backed up his moniker by taking down the Arizona State Championships and turning around a month later to earn his first WPT title with the Legends of Poker victory - chipped away at Nguyen, doubled through him, took more big pots and soon it was Nguyen heading to the rail in 27th place.
Lyons, meanwhile, not just surpassed the MillyMark, he's all the way up to 1,835,000 and a big chiplead with 24 remaining.
