Johnny Chan the Master

Johnny Chan is One of the Sharks Circling Here at the Seniors Chamionship

One of poker's most memorable moments was the hand that ended the 1988 WSOP Main Event, when Johnny Chan flopped the nut straight and played it to perfection to felt Eric Seidel.

The man known as the Orient Express is in the house today, in search of an astounding 11th gold bracelet, and a recent hand had Chan reliving history.

Chan held the {8-}{6-} and with the board reading {8-Diamonds}{6-Hearts}{2-Clubs}{8-Clubs} by the turn, he was in the familiar position of playing a pot with nothing less than the nuts.

When a third club arrived on the river, Chan led out for a bet of 900, and an opponent with bad timing and worse luck decided to make his stand against the champ, raising for the rest of his chips. Chan snapped him off with the nuts, and the shell shocked senior could only toss his useless {A-Clubs}{K-Clubs} into the muck before exiting the Pavilion.
