Johnny Chan - 10th WSOP Bracelet

Johnny Chan became the first, and so far the only, poker player to have won 10 WSOP bracelets on Sunday. Doyle Brunson and Phil Hellmuth both have 9 WSOP bracelets, so Johnny Chan is now ahead of both of them. Chan won the $2500 Pot Limit Event, and his last hand was against Phil Laak, who had KJ. Chan's pocket queens held up, and he won the event. Congratulations to Mr. Chan.

I read somewhere that before the big poker craze really got started that most people only knew Johnny Chan because of his appearance in the movie Rounders. I think that might possibly be true, but I also think that the movie Rounders is one of the reasons for the current poker craze. It certainly added to it.

Comments:
Johnny Chan is downright the best poker play in the world. Nobody can touch him at poker or sports betting.
