WSOP Tournament of Champions

"Nut No Pair"

Howard Lederer raised from the button, Johnny Chan called from the small blind, and Huck Seed folded his big.

Both players checked the {A-Diamonds}{5-Spades}{A-Spades} flop, but Chan was less hospitable on the {9-Spades} turn, leading out for 16,000. Lederer called.

On the {5-Hearts} river, both players checked, allowing Chan to pick up the pot with "the nut no pair", as the T.D. called it, {K-Diamonds}{Q-Clubs}, although Chan was quick to point out that he had a pair of aces.

Lederer, meanwhile, had been counterfeited with {4-Spades}{4-Diamonds}.
