Event #7: €10,400 Main Event Championship

Chan Folds a Straight Too Late

[user169806] • Nivå 6: 250-500, 50 ante

On a board reading {Q-Spades}{3-Diamonds}{2-Clubs}{5-Clubs} Johnny Chan, seated in early position, bet 8,000 and Philippe Sintes instantly called. The river saw the {5-Spades} make an appearance and Chan fired 8,000 again only to see Sintes make it 17,000 to play.

Chan smelled a rat and went deep into the tank for over two minutes before emerging with a fold. He showed {A-Spades}{Q-Diamonds} and Sintes responded by turning over {3-Clubs}{3-Spades}
