Johnny Doubles Up

Johnson Tan

Johnny Tan has doubled up courtesy of the chip leader, Ronald Dimaano.

Pre-flop, Ronald made it 110,000 to go from under-the-gun. The player next to him, Johnny Tan re-raised all in. The rest of the players folded to pave the way for a possible showdown.

Ronald tanked and asked for a count. It would cost him 552,000 more in chips to make the call and he did.

Johnny: {a-Hearts}{q-Spades}
Ronald: {9-Spades}{9-Clubs}

Three diamonds came on the flop together with an {a-Diamonds} to give Johnny top pair. The remaining nine would not come on the turn {2-Spades} nor river {5-Hearts} to double up Johnny to more than a million and a half in chips.
