Event #13: $1,000 No-Limit Hold’em

Phan Gets Lucky


John "The Razor" Phan called an opponent's all in bet with {A-Spades}{10-Spades} and was dismayed to see he was up against {A-Clubs}{Q-Spades}.

The flop was no help to Phan when it came {4-Spades}{K-Hearts}{4-Hearts}. The {9-Diamonds} on the turn left Phan drawing to a ten for a win. "Ten of clubs," Phan said.

The dealer burned and revealed the river; alas, it was not the ten of hearts . . . it was the {10-Diamonds}. Phan hit his pair on the river to eliminate his opponent and take down the 6,500 pot.
