5th Place - Cuong Phung (Atlantic City, NJ) - $6,312

Event 12: $300 + $50 No-Limit Hold'em

Cuong Phung, 5th place

After being crippled by JT Davis, Cuong Phung was short stacked and ended up pushing his ~300k stack in the middle.  He had a good chance of more than tripling up when he found a call in both JT Davis and Mike Sheldon.  The two checked down the entire board.  Sheldon tabled A8 for a pair of aces, and JT Davis mucked his KJ, which had hit a pair of kings.  Phung eventually showed pocket nines (again), and was eliminated in 5th place.  He will earn $6,312 for his finish.

As he was at the cashout desk, Davis was jumping up and down saying, "Why can't a king be good?!"
