WSOP Tournament of Champions

"Here's Johnny!"

Allen Cunningham

It's been quite slow progress thus far, but with 10 minutes left to spare of the first level, we lost out first man.

But what a hand it was, Allen Cunningham the unfortunate victim of a cooler colder than an Artic breeze. I didn't catch the action leading up to the all-in showdown, but with hands on their backs, Chan found himself on the right end of a set over set encounter with {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds} versus {10-Diamonds}{10-Hearts} on a {K-Hearts}{9-Diamonds}{10-Clubs}{2-Clubs} board.

Although Cunningham was drawing to just one out, it was Chan who made quads, the {K-Clubs} river merely adding salt to already open wounds.

"Here's Johnny!" beamed Antonio Esfandiari after Cunningham's departure.
