Baron's Kings Sink Johnny Chan

Johnny Chan

Preflop betting between Johnny Chan and Isaac Baron left the two-time WSOP Main Event champion all in with {7-Clubs}{7-Spades} and in dire straits against Baron's {K-Spades}{K-Diamonds}.

The dealer burned a card and delivered the flop — {10-Spades}{Q-Clubs}{K-Hearts} — Top set for Baron, and very bad news for Chan. The dealer went through the motions of dealing the {9-Spades} turn and {6-Spades} river, ending thigs for Chan. Meanwhile, Baron has now chipped up over 1 million.

With Huck Seed's bustout earlier today, Chan's knockout means the last former WSOP Main Event champion in the field has been eliminated.
