Chien Jenyen now has a great poker story to tell all his friends

As is often the case, no sooner have we written about how well a player is doing and then they bust. The man to have been hit by the blogger’s curse this time around is none other than the Orient Express himself, Johnny Chan.

While Chan had a stack of 280,000 just minutes ago his seat is now empty and we got the story of his demise from the mouth of the very man who busted him –Taiwan’s Chien Jenyen.

According to Jenyen, Chen laid the foundations for his own exit after opening from early position with {q-}{10-} and Jenyen defended from the big blind with {a-Diamonds}{2-Diamonds}.

The flop came down a monochrome {10-Diamonds}{x-Diamonds}{x-Diamonds} to give Jenyen the nut flush and Chan top pair and the action went check, bet, call. Chan’s doom was sealed when a {q-} came off on the turn to give him top two and this is when all the chips went in. Chan is now out and Jenyen has 580,000.
