Chan Falls

Johnny Chan

Johnny Chan check-called a bet of 30,000 on the {J-Clubs}{9-Diamonds}{6-Clubs}{7-Diamonds} board against Shane Dye. The river was the {4-Hearts} and Chan opted to fire out this time. He bet 50,000. Dye took a few moments and then barreled all of his chips into the middle.

Chan had right around 165,000 behind and tanked. Eventually, he said, "You flop a set? I thought you flopped a set."

After another minute or two, Chan said, "If you have a set, you win," and pushed all of his chips into the middle. Dye tabled better than a set with the {10-Clubs}{8-Clubs} for the nut straight. Chan mucked and Dye won the pot to eliminate the 10-time World Series of Poker gold bracelet winner and two-time WSOP Main Event champion.
