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

Huge Hit Rocks Chan's World; Pisano Pushes Ahead

Johnny Chan

Huge pot just now involving Johnny Chan and Robert Pisano. A preflop raising war put Pisano all in for 2.19 million, and left Chan with about 800,000 behind. The hands?

Chan {K-Hearts}{K-Clubs}
Pisano {A-Spades}{A-Clubs}

No king came for Chan, as the dealer delivered the community cards thusly: {4-Diamonds}{10-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{7-Clubs}{4-Hearts}. No wonder Chan's card didn't come -- two different players said they had folded kings!

"Welcome to my world," said Chan afterwards. He still has that 800,000 with which to try to make his world better. Meanwhile, Pisano is on top of our little WSOP Main Event world right now with 4.4 million.
