Hand #104: Scotty Nguyen Eliminated in 5th Place ($249,976)
Level 27: 80,000-160,000, 15,000 ante
Josh Arieh raises under the gun to 350,000, and Scotty Nguyen moves all in from the cutoff for 1,365,000. Faraz Jaka moves all in over the top for 5,180,000, and Arieh folds.
Jaka shows KK, which dominates Nguyen's 99. Nguyen needs to improve to stay alive.
The board comes AJ828, and Faraz Jaka wins the pot with his pocket kings. His friends in the stands start chanting "Toilet! Toilet! Toilet!" (referencing his online name, "The-Toilet"), and then switch to "Shaka, shaka, shaka, boom! Shaka, shaka, shaka, boom!"
Scotty Nguyen is eliminated in fifth place, earning $249,976.
