Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship
Days:

Johnny F***in' Chan!

Johnny Chan raised to 800 in early position, and he was called in two places.

The three men took a flop of {3-Hearts} {Q-Diamonds} {9-Spades}, and the small blind led out with a bet of 1,100. That folded the big blind, but Johnny Chan promptly raised to 3,100. His opponent snap-reraised to 12,100 total, and Chan called.

The turn {2-Clubs} drew a tiny bet of 3,000 from the small blind. Chan instantly raised and his opponent instantly shoved, and Chan called, well... instantly. He turned up {Q-Spades} {Q-Hearts} for top set, and his opponent and his {K-Spades} {Q-Clubs} were drawing dead and eliminated on the {4-Hearts} river.

With that, Chan has moved his way toward the top of the board with 130,000 just as the dinner break approaches.
