Moffatt Can't Save Chan

MrCleverFox • Level 12: 1,000-2,000, 300 ante
Johnny Chan

Tuan Le opened the action with a raise to 4,500 from under the gun. Action folded all the way around to Johnny Chan in the small blind who moved all in for his last 45,000 chips. Then, from the big blind, Colin Moffatt moved all in as well with a covering stack. Action was back on Le who tanked for about 30 seconds before releasing his hand.

Chan: {J-Diamonds}{J-Hearts}
Moffat: {7-Clubs}{7-Spades}

The flop came down {K-Diamonds}{5-Diamonds}{5-Clubs} keeping Chan in the lead. The turn was the {Q-Clubs} and Le was visibly upset upon seeing the card. "You're lucky he moved all in, otherwise I call you Johnny," Le said, explaining that he had folded ace queen.

"I know," Chan said, patting Moffat on the back. "Thanks for saving me!"

But it wasn't over yet. The {7-Hearts} hit the river, giving Moffat the lead with his rivered full house. With that, Chan was eliminated from the tournament and he made his exit from the Brasilia room.
