3rd Place - Juan Chin

Event 6: $250 + $30 No Limit Hold'em

Juan Chin - 3rd place

Andrew Badecker pushed all in from the small blind with Q♥T♥ and Juan Chin made the call from the big blind with A♠5♦.

When the board fell 3♠K♣2♠Q♠K♦, Chin found himself with just ace high, and he could not beat Badecker's turned pair of queens. Chin will receive $9,887 for his 3rd place finish.


  1. "Just Ace High" LOL. I would just like to say that I was ahead Pre-Flop with JUST my Ace high. On the Flop, my percentages increased with a Gut-Shot Straight Draw. Interestingly enough, when he turned that little Queen of his to make a pair, I improved my outs with JUST an "Ace High Flush draw." So to recap properly: Would the River been any 4, any Spade, or JUST any Ace. I would have possessed practically every chip in tournament play...leading to a 1st place finsh!! But hey...That's JUST Poker!!! - Chinito aka Juan Λ Chin

  2. Nice run Juan...sorry you bricked the river, but like you said that's poker

  3. Thanx, Gorilla! Lets see what happens at the WPT event next month @ Foxwoods...
