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

Now He Can Tell His Friends He Beat Johnny Chan

Johnny Chan opened for 1,300 and got three callers including the button and the big blind. The flop was {K-Hearts}{10-Diamonds}{6-Hearts} and the action checked to Chan, who bet 5,000. Only the button called. The turn was the {J-Diamonds} and Chan made it another 8,000 to go. The button called again and they went to the river which fell the {7-Diamonds}. Chan bet 10,000 and the button called.

Chan turned over {A-Diamonds}{K-Spades} for top pair, top kicker, but the button flopped two pair with {K-Diamonds}{10-Spades} to take it down. Chan is still flush with chips, however and currently sits on 149,000.
