Event #65: $10,000 Main Event

Johnny Chan The Master

• Level 1: 50-100, 0 ante

With more than $8.6 million in career tournament earnings and two WSOP Main Event titles, Johnny Chan is a true master of the game. Back in 1987 and 1988 Chan managed to take down the Main Event followed by a runner-up finish in 1989 to Phil Hellmuth.

Today Chan plays at one of the highlighted tables in the Amazon room, but unfortunately for the fans the first day won't be filmed by ESPN.

Also at this table is John Monette, winner of two WSOP gold bracelets. Monnette's a mixed game specialist but also knows his way around the no-limit hold'em tables. In 2009 Monnette recorded his best Main Event run when he finished 155th.
