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.
