Time On Chan

• Level 5: 200-400, 50 ante

We came to Johnny Chan's table with a board showing {8-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{q-Spades}{q-Hearts} and Chan in a hand going up against two opponents.

All the players checked on the turn and watched as the {q-Clubs} was dealt on the river. The first player to act checked this third queen, while Chan would fire out 3,000. The player behind Chan made the call and the action was back on the original checker who now went all in for 13,950.

At this point Chan went deep into the tank, even prompting one player to call the clock on Chan. Just before Chan's one minute time limit ran out, he slid his cards towards the muck. The other player also got out of the way as the pot was sent to the check-raiser.

"Did you have the nine?", the player asked Chan.

"Bigger than the nine," replied Chan as he put his head phones back on his ears.
