The flop came {9-Clubs}{10-Diamonds}{7-Clubs} and it was three-way action at Table 431. The first two players checked to Chad Power on the button, and he bet 66,000. Marco Johnson potted in the small blind for 262,000, the third player mucked and Power said he was all in. Johnson quickly called off his 200,000 or so.

Marco Johnson: {a-Hearts}{q-Clubs}{j-Clubs}{10-Clubs}
Chad Power: {a-Clubs}{q-Diamonds}{3-Hearts}{5-Clubs}

"Oh man, all the club blockers," Power said. "I'm in rough shape against that hand."

He implored the dealer for a low card and got one: the {4-Clubs}, giving him the nut flush. Johnson slid his chair back to exit but an {8-Clubs} river stopped him in his tracks as he made a straight flush, with Power getting a runner-runner low to chop.

The two agreed it was a fair result.

"Both of them did their pro move," someone else said. "He said he was in rough shape and he got up."
