Professors Lives to Play Another Hand

Johnny Chan raised it to 30,000 from the button, and after Huck Seed folded, Howard Lederer defended his big blind. The flop fell {10-Clubs}{6-Hearts}{4-Diamonds}, and Lederer checked. Chan checked behind. Things got much more interesting after the {q-Clubs} on the turn. Lederer checked again, and Chan bet 45,000. Then Howard check-raised all in for a total of 173,000. Chan spent several minutes in the tank...and emerged with a call.

Lederer: {q-Diamonds}{9-Diamonds}
Chan: {k-Clubs}{j-Clubs}

Chan had a world of outs, but the {2-Diamonds} wasn't one of them. Lederer doubled up to 360,000, leaving Chan crippled with 45,000.
