Tehan Bets Out Phan

• Level 5: 200-400, 50 ante

Joe Tehan opened to 1,000 and both Tim Phan and Nam Le made the call from the cutoff and the big blind.

Tehan continued for 1,500 on the {J-Spades}{9-Diamonds}{7-Diamonds} flop only to have Phan raise it up to 4,000 as Le mucked. Tehan made the call before the {10-Spades} was checked through on the turn.

The river landed the {Q-Hearts} and Tehan bet out 5,100 with Phan quickly folding.

Jacks For Dai

[user20283] • Level 5: 200-400, 50 ante

Shang Dai and Johnny Chan have been clashing all day and just now it was the former who got the best of it.

The actions started with a raise from Matthew Ashton to 800 and Chan called. Both blind, including Dai from the small, made the call. The flop came down {A-Hearts}{9-Clubs}{7-Hearts} and the action was checked to Chan who bet 2,400.

Only Dai called and the turn, the {7-Diamonds}, and the river, the {A-Diamonds}, were checked. Dai showed {J-Hearts}{J-Spades} and he won the pot.

The “Show One” Game

• Level 5: 200-400, 50 ante

The buy-in for the Main Event may be $10,000 but table 391 proved that it is still just a fun game of cards for some players. The player with the most chips at the table got the rest of the players to agree to show one card of their choosing at the end of a non-showdown win.

The instigator was in the big blind the next hand and the player to his right joked that all they would be seeing from him was a succession of aces. Another player opened the action for 1,000 and the big blind called.

The flop of {8-Clubs}{a-Spades}{7-Spades} was checked and the turn card was the {a-Clubs}. The original raiser bet 1,000 with 7,000 behind, and the big blind folded. Time to show one card and he said, “Which ten do you want to see?” and showed the {10-Diamonds}.
