Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

A Kingly Battle

We saw the ESPN TV crew rushing over to Johnny Chan's table so we followed and found Chan all in holding the {k-Spades}{k-Hearts} up against Shane Abbott's {k-Diamonds}{k-Clubs}. The odds of two players being dealt the same pocket pair are around 135-to-1 but with flushes still possible Chan was still at risk.

The flop came {9-Clubs}{8-Clubs}{8-Hearts} which did give Abbott outs to a runner runner flush, but the turn brought the {7-Hearts} securing a chop pot for the two players. After the meaningless {6-Clubs} fell on the river the pot was split up and Chan's stack was at around 26,000.
