Phan held the chip lead and the best hand as the flop was dealt . There was no help for Neckar as the turn landed . Needing a queen or jack on the river, Phan watched as the familiar fell on the river to the roar of the rail as John Phan wins his first WSOP bracelet!
Congratulations to Johnny Neckar who put up a fierce showing in this heads-up battle as he collects $277,452 for his efforts
The flop came and Phan checked to Neckar who fired out 325,000. Phan thought for a few minutes before making the call.
The turn of was checked by both players.
The river landed the and Phan bet out 500,000 forcing a fold from Neckar who is now down to 1,100,000.
Both players flipped over one at a time.
At this point, the crowd starts cheering as Neckar is playing the board.
The seven played and Phan doubled up.
After this hand, the two players agreed to play all in blind again. Same rules as last hand. The floorman informed the gallery, "No, we are no longer accepting buy-ins to this event." This time, Neckar's tournament life was at risk.
Again, the players show one card at a time.
Neckar doubled up through Phan. After these two wild hands, Phan had 2,800,000 and Neckar had 1,400,000.
What a wild night that's going on here.
After playing heads up for over six hours John Phan has finally gotten Johnny Neckar to agree to go all in, in the dark. Phan agreed to call. With both players all in without looking at their cards they held:
The board ran out and Neckar spiked a pair to double up to around 2.4 million to take the chip lead!
Welcome to the World Series of Poker!
After the pot, Neckar is down to 1,120,000 in chips.
The flop arrived and Neckar checked over to Phan who fired out a bet of 130,000. Neckar then announced a check-raise to 350,000. Phan went into the tank, as he does for every big decision, before tossing his cards into the muck.
Neckar is chipping away at the chip deficit to try and pull things back to even ground.
Maybe Phan is shifting gears, or perhaps is just trying to create that illusion?
