Chan Loses A Chunk


There was already a big pot brewing between Johnny Chan and Chau Nguyen when we arrived at the table. There was about 24,000 in the middle, and the board read {9-Spades}{a-Spades}{k-Diamonds}{j-Clubs}. Nguyen fired out a bet of 15,200, and Chan tossed in the call after about 20 seconds of thought. The river brought the {10-Clubs}, putting four cards to broadway on the board. Nguyen checked after a few moments of thought, and Chan did the same shortly after.

Nguyen flipped over {j-Diamonds}{j-Spades} for a turned set, and Chan slammed the stack of chips he was shuffling on the table, before folding his hand. As he did, the {a-Hearts} flashed. After the hand, Chan is down to 165,000.
