Not Going Away

Justin Chan

After being down to less than 500,000 earlier, Justin Chan has made the remarkable climb back and is now at over 2.7 million in chips.

Pre-flop, Justin raised to 575,000, more than a third of his entire stack. Small blind Tom Chou got out of the way and action went over to Lei Long, who declared he was all-in.

After tanking for a minute or two, Justin made the call and it turned out to be a great one:

Justin: {j-Spades}{10-Diamonds}
Lei: {j-Hearts}{8-Hearts}

The board ran out {4-Clubs}{a-Spades}{6-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{7-Diamonds} and Justin got the big double-up to 2,720,000 in chips while Lei is now down to 890,000.
