We passed by Johnny Chan's table a few times hoping to catch the master in action, but instead we found Mick "Tall Michael" Graydon extracting value from an unfortunate opponent.
The board read by the turn, with five players involved in a multiway pot, including Chan. Two player's checked to Graydon, who fired out a bet of 1,250 and picked up a single caller.
On the river, Graydon's opponent tossed out a single orange T5000 tournament chip while simultaneously announcing "two."
After his intention to bet 200 or 2,000 was sorted out, the larger amount was wagered and the action was back on Graydon. The Irish pro, who became the first player from that gorgeous emerald isle to achieve the coveted Supernova status on PokerStars, cut out a raise to 6,900 and moved it into the middle.
After a long tank to contemplate his options, the player eventually decided to look Graydon up, but quickly mucked when "Tall Michael" tabled the for a lock on the hand.
