WSOP Tournament of Champions

Chan Extends His Table Lead

It folded around to Johnny Chan on the button who raised to 600. Andrw Barton, from whom we haven't heard much today so far, called in the small blind.

Barton bet out 600 on the {j-Spades}{7-Hearts}{9-Diamonds} flop and Chan called. Barton bet out another 600 on the {2-Hearts} turn, but this time Chan made it 3,500 to go. Barton called, and they saw the river.

The river was the {6-Clubs} and this time Barton checked. He called a 4,000 bet from Chan, but mucked when Chan turned over a premium {k-Hearts}{k-Spades}.

Chan - up to 76,600
Barton - down to 19,800
