Event #20: $1,000 No-Limit Hold'em

Phan Crippled

OHairDJ • Level 15: 1,200-2,400, 400 ante

The player on the button opened for 6,200 and the small blind went all-in for 40,000. John Phan called from the big blind and the button re-shoved for about 80,000 total. Phan fell hard into the tank and after several minutes, the small blind called the clock.

Phan weighed his options but eventually decided to call with about 20 seconds remaining.

Phan: {A-Hearts}{Q-Spades}
Small: {A-Spades}{4-Diamonds}
Button: {J-Clubs}{J-Hearts}

The board came {2-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}{J-Spades}{3-Clubs}{6-Spades}, eliminating one opponent and crippling Phan, who only had the button covered by 12,000.
