WSOP Tournament of Champions

The Professor Rockets Upward

Huck Seed raised, and Howard Lederer moved all in for 30,400 total. Johnny Chan surprised Seed by flat calling. That was scary enough for Seed to give it up. Lederer tabled {a-Hearts}{a-Diamonds} to Chan's {10-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}. The {8-Spades}{4-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds} flop was clean, as was the {7-Hearts} on the turn. Could both siblings get two-outed on the river? The crowd gasped as the {9-Clubs} fell on the turn, but was quickly relieved to see it was one spot short of a killer for Lederer. He more than doubled to 80,000. Chan is still comfortably in the lead, however, with 235,000.
