Event #58: $10,000 Main Event

"I'm On a King-Jack Draw!"

With the board already reading {k-Spades}{j-Spades}{3-Clubs}{7-Hearts}, Johnny Chan had bet 10,000 leaving himself only 475 chips behind. The player on the button went deep into the tank. The call would be nearly half of his remaining chips and he didn't seem very confidant in his hand. He eventually tossed in three orange T5000 chips, technically not an official raise, but good enough as Chan tossed in his last few chips and both hands were tabled.

Chan: {k-Hearts}{j-Diamonds}
Opponent: {8-Hearts}{8-Diamonds}

Chan's two pair was way in the lead but things were paused as an ESPN TV crew made its way over to the table. One of the other players at the table joked, "You're not on a flush draw" to which Chan replied, "I'm on a king-jack draw!"

With the cameras finally in place the dealer put out the river card, the {q-Spades} and Chan doubled up to around 29,500. As he scooped up the pot he said "winner winner chicken dinner" with a big smile on his face.
