Johnny Chan

Johnny Chan, who won the Main Event in back-to-back years (1987 and 1988) and nearly won it a third year in a row, finishing runner-up to Phil Hellmuth in 1989, tossed out a bet of 3,550 on a flop of {6-Diamonds}{j-Spades}{k-Spades}. His opponent, Jean-Jacques Philippe, moved all in for 24,675, and Chan went deep into the tank.

Finally, after two minutes or so, he called, prompting the Frenchman to flip over {k-Hearts}{k-Diamonds} for a set of kings. Chan shook his head, and turned over {6-Spades}{6-Hearts} for a set of sixes.

The turn and river bricked {10-Clubs}, {3-Hearts} respectively, and Philippe doubled to over 50,000 chips, while Chan fell to jusr 14,750.
