Event #57: $10,000 No-Limit Hold'em Championship

Chan Snaps Off Adelstein


Garrett Adelstein picked a bad time to four-bet all in. He opened for 36,000 from the cutoff before Johnny Chan three-bet the button to 101,000. That second raise cleared the blinds. When the action came back to Adelstein, he made a huge all in re-raise to 970,000. Chan, who had Adelstein covered, quickly called with {k-Clubs}{k-Diamonds}. Adelstein could only come up with {q-Hearts}{j-Clubs}. By the turn, Adelstein was drawing only to a chop, with four spades on board {8-Spades}{3-Spades}{4-Spades}{6-Spades}. The river was not a fifth spade; it was the {q-Clubs}, not enough to stave off elimination for Adelstein. He's out, and Chan is up to 2.7 million.
