Event 61: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Main Event

Chan vs. Lew

Johnny Chan

Randy Lew started the action out in a recent hand by making it 2,600 to see the flop. A middle position player made the call and the hijack player did the same. Next it was on Andy Frankenberger on the button who took about a minute to decide what he wanted to do. In the end Frankenberger threw it away.

The small blind folded and action found itself on a big blinded Johnny Chan. Chan took a few moments and pushed forward a stack of chips for a raise. Chan made it 12,000 and action was back to Lew who took about a minute before announcing "all in". The rest of the table folded back to Chan, who quickly made the call making Lew the one at risk. Cards were turned over, and it was Chan who was well out in front.

Chan: {A-Spades}{A-Diamonds}
Lew: {K-Spades}{k-Hearts}

Lew was going to need to grab hold of something if he wanted to continue his Main Event run. The board came {7-Hearts}{4-Spades}{10-Hearts}{Q-Diamonds}{5-Spades} and with that Lew's Main Event and World Series of Poker was over.
